Second Grade Blog Hop

My freebie is for a summer packet.  This is not your traditional summer packet with worksheets.  The kiddos (and parents) I have don't always go for that.  Last year, I got the idea to create a packet and combine it with an end of year gift to my students.

I got everything at Dollar Tree - the sidewalk chalk comes 4 packs in a box, the bubbles were in 3 packs, and the cards are in 2 packs.   The buckets were $1 each (this year, though, I have ones I snagged on clearance from Michaels in the fall!).  So, all in all, it wasn't as pricey as it could have been! 

The packet contains ideas that students can do with things from their house.  No worksheets....just ideas on how to keep the learning "fresh" in their head.  I got a great response from my kiddos last year (and parents) on how this was a great summer boredom buster, the kids played "school" with younger siblings/cousins with the ideas, and just an overall positive response!  

Click on the picture below to take you to my packet!

I've also included a version for students who are not going to third grade (I have 2 of them this year), so it doesn't mention moving up.
Be sure to check out the next blogger on the hop!  Have fun and merry "it's almost the end!"

I really like your review "ideas," instead of a bunch of practice worksheets. It's a great way to keep learning fun over the summer!

This is a great idea! I did a packet last year but only had one who returned it...what a waste of paper. This sounds like something that will definitely get more use! Thanks for sharing!
