This week's Fabulous Friday Freebies is dedicated to those of you putting in some extra hours at summer school or in some other summer learning activity. I also teach summer school each year and so I know summer can be a hard time to get students motivated and interested in school. Here are some fabulous and free activities that look very motivating and wonderfully put together.
This summer Olympics themed memory game has very adorable graphics and is very easy to use in your classroom. I was impressed by the wide array of sports incorporated into this and it has a worksheet that you can also use with the memory game. It doesn't hurt that this game is free!
This summer themed poetry bookmark set also impressed me. Instead of just plain bookmarks with pretty pictures, the bookmarks ask different literary questions which can help students review terms they learned over the year. There are some blank bookmarks that are also included so you could always add your own questions. My favorite kind of freebies are the ones you can customize yourself.
This summer vacation planning unit is a very thorough freebie. It contains a project for students to plan, research and present a vacation that they would like to take. This is similar to a project I did when I was in school and I always looked back fondly on it. I like this project since it contains many parts and also has an already made example which makes this lesson easy to teach.
Lastly I enjoyed this secret agent summer school activity kit. I have always thought that different, special activities are perfect to do over the summer when you most likely have a smaller class and need something extra special to get your students' attention. This packet contains a variety of fun activities that are easy to use and well described.
