5th grade summer learning activities

We designed this fifth grade summer learning calendar to be a fun, easy way for your child to practice important skills over the summer. Fifth graders should be able to work independently on most of these worksheets and activities, but if you can, check on your child’s progress periodically throughout the day. As a study break, encourage your child to try the PE challenges or get some exercise. It will help them focus — and it’s a great study habit for middle school and beyond. For the science activities, an adult’s curiosity and assistance may be needed. Remember, kids this age respond more to positive reinforcement, so showing your enthusiasm at whatever your child accomplishes will give them motivation to keep trying!
