Some important resources. Because you might be teaching summer school

How much flexibility do you have if you're teaching summer school?  Is there a particular program you must follow, or can you use what works best for each of your students?

Dig into a good novel

There are so many good books to read with your students or have them read independently, that are engaging for summer and have ways to strengthen reading and comprehension.  These books cover a range of different genres and topics.  

  • Pony by R.J. Palacio
  • Never Caught by Erica Armstrong Dunbar and Kathleen Van Cleve

Each has a novel study guide that reviews and reinforces reading comprehension skills and has enrichment activities to help students grow.
Here are a few that would work well.  Click on the links to take a closer look.

Reading passages with escape rooms

A novel might feel like too much, or you might not have the time to dig that deeply.  It's easy to pivot to reading passages.  And reading passages with Escape Rooms?  The best!
These have proven to be popular with students and teachers.

Review comprehension skills with coloring

Do your kids get restless and need to switch gears, or do you have early finishers?  Are you looking for a center or small group activity?  Take a look at these Color by Number worksheets that review important skills.
I hope you find something that works for you!
