This summer we released not just one, but six Summer of Wonder Activity Packets designed to help families combat the dreaded summer learning loss, more commonly known as the “brain drain,” “summer slump,” or “summer slide.” The activity packets, available at www.makewonder.com/summer, have been well received not only by parents but by educators running summer camps.
Then, a couple of weeks ago at a SEP Jr. workshop in New York City, several NYC teachers told us that they had downloaded the PDF packets to use during the upcoming school year. And that got us thinking about all the different ways educators might use these activity packets during the new school year:
So what’s in these activity packets? Well, these packets have Challenge Card activities for Dash, Dot, and Cue. Plus, we also outline some DIY, craft-oriented project ideas. And lastly, we outline some “unplugged” puzzles and games, which engage students without any screen time for a balanced approach.
Simply go to www.makewonder.com/summer to register to download these six activity packets for free. Be sure to check out (and share!) the recommended reading list, full of picture books, chapter books, and books for adults, too!
Don’t forget to tell us how you are weaving Dash, Dot, and Cue into your daily classroom practice, and find lots of examples on Twitter @WonderWorkshop. Follow us today!
