Summer Literacy and Math Project


The Evesham Township School District recognizes the value of maintaining reading and math levels that students have acquired during the school year. Therefore, it is essential that students have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the summer months, while also continuing to work on reading and math skills through fun and engaging tasks to avoid any regression. To that end, the district annually implements a summer literacy and math project to provide engaging ways for students to not only practice reading and math skills, but more importantly encourage lifelong readers and mathematicians.

ETSD is happy to unveil the One District, One Theme of Responsibility Starts with Me 
for the 2024-2025 school year. All students are being asked to be sure one of the books they select to read this summer is connected to the responsibility theme. See below for summer 2024 choice projects for literacy and math. All incoming ETSD students are encouraged to participate this summer! Eighth Grade Students: Click here for Lenape Regional High School District summer reading information.


In terms of literacy, we expect all elementary school students to read a minimum of five books/texts during the summer and all middle school students to read a minimum of three books/texts. All books should be self-selected by the students, with the exception of connecting one to the district theme of responsibility. 

There is a literacy choice board that is to be utilized for any of the books being read this summer. Select the appropriate literacy choice board below:

Optional reading log templates may be found at the following links:

Students are also encouraged to maintain their math skills by working on self-selected math tasks that represent a variety of concepts from the designated choice board for math. This summer's math focus is puzzles and riddles. A minimum of five math activities are to be completed this summer. Select the appropriate math choice board below:

Upper elementary and middle school literacy and math choice boards ask students to create a post on Padlet. Simply click on the link in the choice board that will direct students to Padlet. Students must log in to Padlet using their school Google account. All students are expected to post appropriately and entries will be monitored.

About Padlet

Padlet (formerly Wallwisher) is a free application to create an online bulletin board that you can use to display information for any topic. You can add text, images, links, videos, and more. Simply click on the pencil in the bottom right of the board then add your message. Remember to add your name to the post as well. All posts will be reviewed by a teacher before it appears on the board.

Online Etiquette

The ETSD summer Padlets are available for all students in the school community, grades K-5 at the elementary level or 6-8 at the middle school level. As a student in the district, access to the Padlets is a privilege and you are expected to be considerate of all students in the school who will be participating over the summer months. Your entries will be reviewed and approved by a teacher before being posted on the site. Therefore, there will be a delay from when you write/submit to when it appears on the Padlet for others to view. Any inappropriate submissions will not be approved and will be forwarded to the building principal for follow-up in September.

Here are a few rules to follow when blogging or commenting/responding:

  • The use of online posting is considered an extension of your classroom/school community.
  • Do not share personal information.
  • No text talk  - write/speak in full sentences and read/listen your comments back carefully before submitting.
  • Make sure your entry stays on topic and is about the required activity.
  • If you use media from another source, be sure to properly cite the creator of the original work.
