Depending on where you live, the school year may be officially over in May. But if it’s not, or if you teach ESY, here are some lesson plans for June that will have your students engaged and excited to learn through the summer months.
Read on to get lesson ideas and clickable links you can use through June in your classroom!
Lesson Plans for Literacy
If you’ve been around for a while, you know that we LOVE the There Was An Oldy Lady series. And luckily, there’s one that’s perfect for June- There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell! Bring this one to life with the Book Companion Set, which includes an adapted book piece set, craftivity, and interactive sequencing page to get your students involved in the storytelling excitement!

Open up your students’ creative side and get them writing with the June Writing Prompts. And these prompts aren’t made just for pen and paper, so they’re an excellent fit for students who don’t necessarily love conventional writing. Print the prompts on labels for a journaling experience, project them onto a whiteboard for whole-class writing, make a card ring out of them for centers, or get digital using the prompts made for Google Slides! Trust me when I say that this is a tool you will want to have if you focus on differentiation and different learning styles in your classroom.
Lesson Plans for Following Directions
The Step-by-Step Summer Directed Drawings will allow your students to fine-tune their ability to follow directions, and they’ll be having so much fun they won’t even realize! This pack features ten seasonal images- the ice cream cone is my fav. Students can draw them by following five simple steps. Cheers to sneaking in visual-motor practice as well!
Lapbooks are a creative and themed way to help students follow directions! With the Father’s Day Lapbook, students can follow and answer the prompts about Dad to create a keepsake he will love. Keep the Father’s Day theme rolling with the Father’s Day Adapted Book, which is excellent for small-group ELA!
Lesson Plans for Life Skills
Since the warmer weather is officially here, now’s a great time to break out the Dress Me For The Seasons File Folder Game. Students can identify appropriate wear for the weather by sorting over twenty-five pieces of clothing by season.
Get cooking with these tasty and unique June Visual Recipes. Introduce students to kitchen tools of the trade by helping them whip up scrumptious treats such as Strawberry Dark Bark, Unicorn Floats, Swedish Fish Sushi, and more! Students follow step-by-step visual directives to reach the delicious result with this lesson. Perfect for visual learners and kiddos who are working on sequencing skills.
