Grammar, Punctuation, and Editing Review

Grammar, Punctuation, and Editing Review

Word study skills are easily lost during the summer, so make sure to review them often. Provide opportunities for your child to practice key concepts like punctuation and spelling so that they are prepared for sixth grade. When your child reads a book, make sure to point out specific punctuation, especially difficult ones like semicolons, and discuss their purpose in the sentence.
Don't forget to include word study in your summer review packet! This is one area that is hard to practice without guided activities or focused lessons. Many students have a hard time retaining the grammar skills they learned during the school year, so be sure to choose review worksheets that focus on key skills like puncutation and spelling.

The sixth grade Common Core math standards include a lot of geometry and pre-algebra, so provide practice pages that review the order of operations and angle measurements.

Key Components of Texts

Key Components of Texts

Generate enthusiasm about summer reading by taking a trip to the bookstore or library. Encourage your child to research books they'd like to read by asking friends or by looking up new titles online. Build a reading wish list and have your child check off the books they read from the list. Or, wrap a few books in wrapping paper and have your child choose an unknown book. Challenge your child to try out the book to read different genres.
Challenge your students to read different genres during the summer. Kids tend to gravitate toward their favorite types of books, so encourage them to mix it up! Review the components and features of various genres, and provide them with a chart to keep track of the titles they read. Many public libraries offer reading lists by grade level, so you may be able to suggest this as a resource for your students. Encourage parents to talk with their children about the books they are reading to help avoid the "summer slide."
