ABC Countdown to Summer Activities for Upper Grades:
These fun and rigorous ABC countdown to summer activities for upper elementary grades are perfect for you if you want your students to stay engaged during the final FIVE WEEKS of school!
Every activity includes ALL the printables you’ll need to complete the activities.
Each day corresponds to a letter of the alphabet, so there are 26 interactive activities.
ONLY 3 activities require supplies above and beyond printing and copying. These supplies include glue, tape, string, scissors, toothpicks, and marshmallows (or play dough). The other 23 activities can be completed simply by printing and copying the pages in this product.
These are the alphabet activity topics by day:
A – Awesome Autobiographies

Not only are these alphabet countdown activities engaging, they continue to address curriculum standards, including sequencing using a timeline, persuasive writing, note-taking, poetry, and more!
Each page is labeled with a letter in the bottom right corner for organization purposes. In addition, activities that require an explanation include a full page of tips and instructions for the teacher.
The planning guide (3 pages) at the beginning of the product also gives teachers a quick reference guide for printing tips (which pages can be copied back-to-back, for example) and allows teachers to schedule each activity.
You can combine some activities if you don’t have 26 days left in the school year! Many activities require at least an hour during the day, but some are shorter. Consider your class’s needs as you plan each activity and decide which days you can combine.
