Summer Activity Board

To keep organized and to motivate the kids, I created a summer activity board.  It is divided into three parts: Summer Reading, Boredom Busters, and Things to Do.


Things to do....

-Summer Bucket List
-Calendar of Events
-Math Practice Area- reward charts


Boredom Busters...

-Enrichment and Thinking Activities
Example: Create riddles about zoo animals or Create a wanted poster for a character in a fairy tale. 
-Summer Fun worksheets(mazes, word searches etc. from funschool)

Summer Reading...

-Barnes and Noble Reading Journal
-Borders Double Dog Dare Challenge
-Chuck E Cheese Reward Calendar
-Scholastic Family Reading List

Incredible what all you have there -- seems like a great way to be prepared for the ineviatble "I'm bored!"

Awesome summer board!

Did you get the invite to join my tribe on triberr? Once you join the tribe, your blog posts automatically get tweeted by the 7 other members of your tribe. there isn't any extra work involved. You now can be in more than one tribe. No pressure either way, just wanted to touch base.

happy SummeR!
