    Summer review

    What do you guys use for a quick daily summer review?

    I'm thinking of reviewing math facts (just finished grade 4) and 30 minutes of independent reading time.

    I want screen-free review time.

    Any go-to ideas for this summer?
    DS12- Simply Classical mash-up of SC Spelling 1, intensive reading remediation, and MPOA 4th grade math.
    DD10- Classic Core 4th Grade w/ 5th grade literature
    DD8- Classic Core 2nd Grade

    We've completed:
    Classic Core Jr. kindergarten, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade
    Simply Classical levels B, C, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5/6

    Keep it simple or it won’t happen. Since Memoria Math doesn’t have higher levels, I would see if Rainbow Resource has a no-frills drill book for the four operations. Page a day and done.

    Most of my kids devour books so I’ve never had to set up anything formal on that front. Maybe get some books from the read-aloud sets (AbeBooks often has better prices than ThriftBooks). She could then tell you what happened in the reading before moving on for the day.

      Yep, one page of the drill pages (we use the packet that comes with the 4th grade R&S set). I use dry erase pockets/wet erase markers and there are 4 colors for the 4 operations. 1 per day, and they rotate through red, green, blue, purple, etc. What latin did you do? I would maybe add 5 min of flashcard review, the 5 min fact form and depending on phonics or spelling maybe something there. We also do the 30 min of reading time as well.

        Great idea!

        I was thinking about this:

        - Math: 15 min unused speed drills or blacklines, occasional flash cards
        - Spelling/Writing: 15 min spelling/writing, if only StartWrite-generated copywork of previously studied spelling words
        - Reading: 30 min with timer, preferably immediately following the above, as it might then feel like a reward for finishing the written review.
