Summer Resources: Ninth Grade

2020 Summer Activity/Learning Suggestions
Eighth Grade going into Ninth Grade

Welcome to ninth 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!

Suggestions

  • Read, read, read!

    Your required summer reading and books of your own choice.

  • Find & Share Books

    Go on family trips to bookstores and libraries (online or in person if open); talk about books; share your favorite books.

  • Math Review!
