Lesson Resources

Week 35 Plans
This is a template for lesson plans during a summer unit. Pick and choose what ideas and resources work for your learners.

Summer – Whole Group
These resources can be used during whole group instruction for a summer theme. They include a poem, word cards, tracing page and table sign in sheets.

Summer Interactive Poem

Lesson Plans

Summer Thematic Plans
Use these plans as a guide for engaging summer read alouds and activities in the classroom.

Summer
Read And Then Comes Summer and have learners list activities, places and foods we experience in summer. Have learners choose an item from each category to illustrate in detail.

Hot Sun
Read Wet Dog or Heatwave and have learners draw a way to stay cool on a post-it to add to a chart. Learners can write and illustrate how they will stay cool.

Bubbles
Read Pop! A Book About Bubbles and work together to list the steps to make bubbles. Explore how bubbles react when blown different.

Ice Cream
Read Milk to Ice Cream and order the steps mentioned in the text. Work together to order how to make homemade ice cream and make your own to enjoy.

Watermelon
Read The Watermelon Seed and have learners draw what would happen if they ate a seed on a butcher paper watermelon. Have learners complete the BME writing activity,

Summer Sensory Charts
Explore summer with the five senses. Complete the charts together and have learners draw and write about their summer experience using their senses on the interactive page.

Summer Predictable Chart Class Book
Use this resource to create a class book from the predictable chart created during the week.

Literacy Centers

Literacy Center | Letter Match
Have learners match the snow cones by their uppercase and lowercase letter.

Literacy Center | Short Vowel
Have learners sort the pictures by their medial vowel sound on a pocket chart.

Literacy Center | Sight Word WTR
Have learners find the sight words around the room and write them on their printable page.

Math Centers

Math Center | Graphing Data
Have learners sort and record the pictures on the chart. Two graphs are provided.

Math Center | Addition
Have learners picture two watermelons and add the seeds in each on the mat provided

Math Center | Number Order
Have learners put the numbers in order counting up and counting down.


LEARNING STANDARDS INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE

Common Core Standards

Language Arts

CCSSL.K.1a
Print many upper- and lowercase letters.
CCSSRF.K.1d
Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
CCSSRF.K.2a
Recognize and produce rhyming words.
CCSSRF.K.2d
Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words. (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
CCSSRF.K.3b
Associate the long and short sounds with common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
CCSSRF.K.3c
Read common high-frequency words by sight (e.g., the, of, to, you, she, my, is, are, do, does).
CCSSSL.K.5
Add drawings or other visual displays to descriptions as desired to provide additional detail.
CCSSW.K.2
Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic.
CCSSW.K.3
Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to narrate a single event or several loosely linked events, tell about the events in the order in which they occurred, and provide a reaction to what happened.

Math

CCSSK.NBT.A.1
Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
CCSSK.CC.A.2
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
CCSSK.OA.A.1
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
CCSSK.OA.A.3
Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
CCSSK.MD.B.3
Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.
