2P SUMMER RESOURCES
Superkids online is available for use through June 30th. However, this year Superkids has provided us with a Summer Reading Packet for downloading and printing, which includes summer practice pages, games and reading activities to keep your child’s skills sharp for next year. Parent instructions are also included. Highly recommended!!!
Epic unlimited access expires June 30th, however, starting July 1stI, all families who have signed up for Remote Student Access will be able to enjoy Epic Free, which includes 2 hours of free reading per week in a limited library of high-quality educational books. Most of you have already signed up, so there is nothing more for you to do. RSA family accounts will automatically transition to Epic Free on July 1st and students can log in through the Parent account (not using our classroom code). If you did not previously sign up for RSA, I have sent you an invitation email so your child can keep reading on Epic through the summer and beyond.

GO MATH Practice Book has “Get Ready for Grade 3” lessons beginning on page 261. These lessons teach and review skills during the summer so your child has a head start in 3rd Grade. The odd number practice pages are instruction, and even number pages are for your child to independently practice. The following links are the answers keys to assist parents for Get Ready for 3rd Grade Lessons 1-10 and Get Rready for 3rd Grade Lessons 11-20.
Cursive practice is very important over the summer, so student’s are ready for 3rd grade. You can practice writing a letter to a friend or family member, write a list or anything you can think of. If you’d like additional practice, please feel free to download and print these cursive blackline masters from Universal Publishing.
