"Summer Suggestions" and Writing Rubric Pack sneak peak

Happy summer!!! I have one more teacher work day and then I'm official done! This year has flown by and I absolutely adored my class so it's definitely bitter sweet. However I am all sorts of excited to spend the summer with my boys. I'm so excited for a great summer!

I'll be doing lots of "playing" but I also have a huge list of things I want to accomplish this summer. There are so many little/big/huge assignments I'm planning for myself.

Before I said goodbye to my students and their families, I wanted to make sure they had some direction for the summer. As I've mentioned before (sorry to be a broken record), my parents are super involved! I'm pretty lucky to have parents so willing to work with their kids. So, I made this little "summer suggestions" sheet that I sent home on the last day of school. I had my students fill out one and I filled out one. I chose one or two things that I felt that student really needs to focus on this summer (handwriting, reading fluency, long vowels, etc.)

Also, drumroll please... I am almost done with my writing rubrics megapack! Here's a sneak peak:

So far it's 40 pages of rubrics! I wanted to give a lot of variety. I'm pretty excited about it. :)


  1. OOOH! I can't wait for these writing rubrics. They look very user-friendly for my firsties and will keep me on track too with the specifics to teach.

  2. I love your literacy centers! Are you creating one for Semptember?
