Common Core Summer Packets for Speech and Language

I can’t prolong it anymore-I am sooo excited for summer! 
Here are the Allison Household plans for this week:
Monday: cookout with my in-laws
Tuesday: switch out my winter clothes for my summer ones
Thursday: order mulch
Saturday: plant flowers

If you’re like me, this winter has been abnormally long. That’s why I just couldn't wait any longer and created my Common Core Summer Packets for Speech and Language

I love creating summer speech books for kids to take with them over the summer. It helps bridge the long gap between sessions and allows me to sleep better in the summer (even if I know some of them aren't completing them!) 

In fact, my very first post on this little blog was last year around this time. And the topic?....Summer Speech Books. Click HERE to read. 

So...because of my love, this year I decided to create my very own Summer Speech Packets to share with you! 

This product contains 4 complete summer packets with daily questions for 8 weeks of learning. And...because I know we all like to know what we are doing counts, they are all aligned to the Common Core State Standards. This is great because they let parents know why we want our students working on these skills. 

With this huge packet, you receive everything you need to send your students off with the skills they need, including:
*3 Coloring Covers (pages 3-5)
*1 Parent Letter (pages 6)
*8 week Language Packet for grades K-1 (pages 7-14)
*8 week Language Packet for grades 2-3 (pages 15-22)
*8 week Language Packet for grades 4-5 (pages 23-30)
*8 week Articulation Packet (pages 31-38)
*Credits (page 39)
Here's what I do:

1. Print out as many of the packets as you need (depending on area and grade level). 
2. Students choose one of the three coloring pages to decorate on the last day of speech. 
3. Staple the entire packet together (cover, parent letter, packet)
5. Enjoy! (I always promise a special treat for kiddos who bring their's back completed in the fall). 

Students color in the circle for each day they complete the activity.
