Summer Resources: Sixth Grade

2020 Summer Activity/Learning Suggestions
Fifth Grade going into Sixth Grade

Welcome to sixth grade! The intention of summer practice is to integrate school learning into home life. Below you’ll find suggestions that include playful activities that also reinforce academic skills, in a relaxed family environment. This year, given the COVID situation, we have added more online opportunities for learning over the summer. We’ve also included online resources and quick links to specialist google slide lessons for art, music, and Spanish, in case your student would like to access these over the summer.

Wishing you a restful and restorative summer!
