1st grade summer learning activities

Since schools closed due to the pandemic — and with summer programs so limited this year — we designed four weeks of first grade summer learning activities to help your child build on what they learned this year. Schedule some quiet work time throughout the summer for your child to work on important skills. An adult’s curiosity and assistance may be needed for some activities, especially science. Keep the sessions short and low-pressure, and remember to reward your child’s work with enthusiasm. See more summer learning calendars.
