Looking for great books to read and fun summer activities to do with the kids? I am so excited to announce that I have created a set of printable book based summer activity calendars for you! The calendars are full of book suggestions and fun activities to do as a family.
They are perfect for:
- teachers to send home with students for the summer.
- librarians to pass out to patrons.
- families who want to enjoy great books and do simple themed activities at home.
The set includes 3 calendars (June 2016- August 2016), 3 resource sheets, 3 tracking sheets, and a letter to families. Hang the calendar on the refrigerator each month and take the resource sheet with you to the library to gather the books for the month. The resource sheets also include links to activities. Track the books you read on the coloring sheets too.
Plus, you may also choose to sign up for weekly email reminders of books and activities including bonus content to compliment each theme. Information will be sent to sign up after your purchase.
The calendars are perfect for families with preschoolers through grade 2!
Each week a theme is introduced with a wonderful children’s book. If you can’t find the main title, there are two alternative book ideas each week. Then, there are 5 easy to do activities included with each theme. Activities include literacy, math, art, science and gross motor ideas. You can choose to do as many as you want to fit your family’s schedule.
Here is a look at just one week of the June calendar.
Featured book: Jump, Frog, Jump! by Robert Kalan
Alternate books: Puddles by Jonathan London or Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow
- Count how many time you can jump in a row. Then count by 2s, 5s, or 10s
- Name all the animals that you can think of that jump.
- Jump in a puddle. You may need a hose to help if there are no nature made puddles.
- Explore a jumping colors activity.
- Draw five lines on the sidewalk with chalk. Practice jumping over the lines.
You get all of these wonderful resources for just $4!
After your purchase, you will immediately be able to download and then print the black and white 3 calendars, 3 resource sheets, 3 tracking sheets, and a letter to families with an emailed link. There are also a total of 12 pages. You will also receive information to sign up for the weekly reminders.
Enjoy exploring great books and summer activities with young children!
