Summer Step-Up Folders

Setting up summer folders

I may be crazy, but I’m sending home summer step-up folders for students to practice some “step-up” to third-grade skills. It, in no way, is required, but I know a ton of students that will massively benefit from continuing to work for just half an hour over the summer!

My Summer Step-Up Folders Include:

Parent Letter

Reading Log (from Faith Wheeler’s packet)

Practice Sheets

Step Up Math (booklet from Envision curriculum)

Extra Reading Comprehension Practice

Goodie Bag congratulating students on passing!

(I found my bag of fish idea on Pinterest- a genius place that is)

Envision Math has a “Step Up to 3rd Grade” set of booklets for the students to work on. I will be sending those home.

Also, I’m sending home a reading comprehension packet (part of my Summer Reading comprehension set) that will help kids with their comprehension skills, which are very necessary for the 3rd grade.

Documents for school folders

Prepped and ready to go! Here is a look at everything I’ve gathered up to take home for the weekend. There are my prepped folders, reading packets, math packets, review packets.

The Assembly Line

Assembly line

Here’s my assembly line on my bedroom floor on Saturday morning. I’m spread out on the floor and watching some mindless TV while I create these summer step-up folder packets.

Parent letter

Don’t forget your parent letter explaining the meaningfulness of summer learning. Kids lose so much knowledge over these two months, and it is important for them to help out!

Treat bags

I am IN LOVE with the treat bags that I saw on Pinterest last summer and decided to try to make my own! And, I think they turned out pretty cute.

I know I’m aiming big, but I really hope that these students can have some motivation to work over the summer and be responsible, however, if they don’t, I hope that they AT LEAST explore outside and enjoy their summer.
