Countdown to the End of School
Spring Break has come and gone and we are in it for that last long haul! This is always an exciting time of year with summer so close! There’s also the realization that there aren’t any more breaks until summer. No need to worry though! The Core Coaches are here to help you not just survive, but continue to thrive during this time.
Countdown to the End of School
There are two times during the year when teachers begin counting the days: winter break & summer break. Some teachers get by with just a mental countdown – some of us need something more tangible!
If you are like us and need a physical countdown to the end of school, we have you covered!
The 10 Days Until Summer Survival Kit is the perfect way to survive & thrive all the way until that final bell rings!
Digital & Printable, this survival kit includes engaging end-of-year themed activities that will help students get excited for summer. Covering topics like, “Summer Safety Day” & “Summer Holidays Day” each daily kit covers reading, writing, and math standards so your students continue to learn.
Digital Survival Kits are available in Grade Pairs:
- End of School Year — 1st & 2nd Graders
- End of School Year — 3nd & 4th Graders
- End of School Year — 5th & 6th Graders
We know that the countdown to the end of school is going to be longer than 10 days though. So, what do you do for the other days? Reading Lesson Plans is always a favorite of The Core Coaches! We’ve put three of our favorite books in a special
May Read-Aloud Bundle for 1st & 2nd Graders:
- Not Quite Narwhal by Jessie Sima
- Anansi and the Talking Melon by Eric E. Kimmel
- Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty.
This read-aloud pack includes rigorous text-dependent questions, differentiated graphic organizers, response-to-text writing activities, and a craftivity.
As with all our products, detailed lesson plans for each book are also included.
Use this bundle in conjunction with the 10 Day Survival Kit to keep students engaged from May Day to Memorial Day!
