About the TCRWP Virtual Summer School Curriculum

These all-new, standards-based—and joyful—summer school units/modules were developed around what we observe to be the most important needs of students as they emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic and prepare for the new school year. We offer the units in a suggested sequence, but, because we know that some schools and districts will wish to plan their own sequence, each module can be purchased a-la-carte as well. See the “Subscription Terms and Conditions” section on this webpage for more information.

About this Unit/Module

Each summer school day for rising third graders begins with a lively, quick cumulative phonics review that uses highly engaging activities to help kids consolidate their knowledge of phonics. This work includes Making Words (also called Word Ladders), an activity that can be done again and again in ways that reinforce other phonics work. Kids work with words, breaking them down, writing them, using familiar word parts to do so. They revisit endings (especially n blends), vowel teams such as igh, ie, ow, ou, ew, ue, au, aw, and R-controlled vowels, and also work with prefixes and suffixes. The goal for this work is to support review and automaticity with the phonics that children are taught during kindergarten and first grade.
