Summer Math and Reading
Students will be bringing home a summer math calendar and reading bingo activity. These activities are recommended, but not required. Reviewing skills in math will maintain the foundation for success at the next grade level. The design of the activities is meant to support instruction in the curriculum in both its content and presentation. Therefore, the activities are not to be done as independent problems, but to be worked on with a parent, guardian or older sibling/cousin. Talking about the problems and strategies for solving them is an important part of completing each activity. Reading and discussing books over the summer is also critical for students to retain the skills learned throughout the school year. As students complete activities on the bingo board, be sure to record titles read on the reading log. If you choose to complete these activities, bring the packet back during the first week of school and turn it in to your new teacher.
