The truth is, nothing goes better together than summer and ice cream. The only possible problem with this summer vocabulary worksheet is that students may not be content with making fake ice cream sundaes and may need to eat their own after they finish writing about their paper ones.

With this delicious vocabulary activity students will concoct and assemble delectable ice cream sundaes based on vocabulary words!

This summer vocabulary worksheet is a great way to end the year and/or send students home with a great way to keep practicing their vocabulary over the summer.

#5 Pinterest Vocabulary Board Activity

I love Pinterest, as I’m sure many of you and your students do. Since kids are browsing favorite Pinterest ideas anyway, ask them to create a specific Pinterest vocabulary board that links recipes, tips, clothes, quotes, and so on, to vocabulary words. What a great visual way to enhance vocabulary knowledge! If you don't want your students on Pinterest, you can download the summer worksheet for students to create their boards with clipart and drawings.

#7 Create a Vocabulary Playlist

When I think of my students enjoying summer break, I can't help but hear summer soundtracks playing in my head. I can guarantee that students are listening to music whether they are by the pool, driving in the car to a vacation destination, or working a summer job.

With this summer worksheet, students will make mnemonic connections to words and definitions by simply linking a vocabulary word to a favorite relevant song. The downloadable vocabulary playlist is an easy way to engage students in thinking critically about tough words.
