This is a digital summary of the Summer Packet I sent home with your child. Many of the resources I sent home are available here in a digital format. Some items however are only available in the hard copy format that you received in June. These activities are meant to be worked on with your child. They are not independent, busy work for your child. The noted activities each have directions that you will have to read in order to properly complete the activities. This extra practice will reinforce some of the skill that we have learned this year.
I hope you enjoy this bonding time, with your child, over the summer. Please do not return the packet in September. It is yours to keep. :)
Have a wonderful summer! Come to visit me in September! Mrs. Kimberly Goldthwait
