The Summer Activities for Fall Readiness book is developed to help children maintain the academic skills they have already acquired and to get a head start on the skills they will learn in the coming school year. This book can also be used anytime during the year to provide practice and reinforce skills. It is aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

This book is divided into 10 one-week sections. There are five reading/language arts activity pages and five math activity pages to work on each week. The first half of the book is dedicated to reviewing previous grade skills and the second half provides a sneak-peek at what your child will learn in the next grade. Pages are clearly marked so that you'll know at a glance if you child is working on a review skill or a look ahead skill.
