Dear Parents,

Happy summer!  Our first graders have grown so much this year.  The best way for them to continue learning is to experience our world – go to museums, the parks, the beach, the city, your backyard garden – explore!  Play board games together and apply critical thinking, logic, and math skills while learning good sportsmanship.  Cook together – measure ingredients and keep track of time. Join in team sports.  Pick up a musical instrument or sing.  Have them relax and replenish their energy for a busy year in second grade. 


Here are some supplemental activities and hands-on games.  Click on the blue, bold-faced topics below to view and print documents.


Reading - Read daily and answer Booktalk Questions.  Play games: Yahtzee, Scrabble, Boggle, Sight word Bingo.

Writing - Write letters to relatives and friends. Keep a summer journal of daily activities. Answer Fun Journal Prompts , using the Writing Checklist.

Math – Play Math Card Games  to master math facts. Play board games: Hi Ho Cherry O, Monopoly, Candy land. We are adopting Engage NY as our math program for next year.  Great minds is the program publisher, see weblinks below for information.

Fine Motor – Be artsy and crafty – use crayons, paints, markers, scissors and glue.  Play with clay or play dough.  Build with lego. Use Handwriting Pages if you are still working on your letter formation.
