3 Things to Prep for ESY

Let’s talk about three things to prep for ESY!

Summer is approaching and that means it is time to get ready for extended school year.  For my district, summer school is known as extended school year, or ESY.  What I love about ESY is that I can just continue doing what I have been doing all school year with my students with minimal prep.  With that being said, there are some things I suggest prepping for the upcoming ESY session:


Leveled Daily Curriculum

I love using The Autism Helper’s Leveled Daily Curriculum for ESY because I use this during the school year so my students are already familiar with the format.  Additionally, I prep these at the beginning of the school year so I always have extra packets on hand.  This makes it easy for me to pull whatever I need. Finally, I may need to just prep a few pages or two units for ESY but with that being said, this is a very simple ESY prep for me. 

Summer Work Tasks

Next, I am working on prepping TAHs Summer Work Task Mega Pack for my task box center.  I swap out my tasks with every season so ESY is a great time to prep for summer tasks.  The Sumer Work Task Mega Pack comes with 25 different leveled work tasks and is perfect for my independent center. For more information on how I use independent work tasks in my classroom,  read this blog post.

Easy Matching Weekly Workbooks

Finally, my students use TAH’s Matching Weekly Workbooks throughout the school year, so it makes sense to use them for ESY as well.  I love that there are so many different versions of these workbooks.  Right now, I am working on prepping the Summer Edition of these workbooks for my students.  Typically, I prepare one set of the workbooks and give them to my students to work on independently while targeting IEP goals with one student. Also, if I need to leave my center due to behavior or other teacher things, these are great to give to students.  To learn more about the Easy Matching Weekly Workbooks, you can read this post from Jen.
That’s all for three things to prep for ESY!  I hope you and your students have a wonderful summer.  If you have any questions, let me know in the comments and I will get back to you.  Thanks for reading!
