Summer writing can be a relaxed activity without the pressure of the school year. This post has an A to Z round up of summer learning fun, as well as a free writing printable with summer words. Scroll down a little for the free printable. The A to Z links and linky are all intended to help families have educational summer fun.
I have prepared two sets of summer vocabulary pocket chart words with small illustrations, as well as differentiated writing paper for K-2. The printable is for black and white printing and has options for different sizes of writing lined paper.
