Free AETN Summer Learning Packets

Posted on 22 Jun 2014

Calling all Arkansas daycare groups, summer camps and more! We want to help you as you keep our state’s kiddos brains busy over the break by sharing free  summer learning materials.

This year’s free packets include Summer Learning Activity Books, AETN KIDS Reading Charts and bookmarks. To request these materials for your kiddos, email our Early Childhood Coordinator Amy Routt at aroutt@aetn.org. Please be sure to include your name, organization, shipping information and the number of children you plan to serve.

But there’s no reason you can’t start the fun with free summer learning materials right now! If you just hop over to the AETN KIDS page, we have all sorts of fun ideas and free, downloadable materials you can print whenever you’d like.


Get started with great literacy packets for exciting ideas that make reading even more fun, like going on a BookNic, tips for reading on a trip, ways to make the most of library trips and even ways that kids can practice reading in a restaurant! 

Then, be sure to check out all sorts of fun, free printables — from our summer schedule to bookmarks, activities and more! 


Spanish-language worksheets and activities are also available, along with fun tips for starting kids’ book clubs, summer learning ideas and recommendations for encouraging summer reading. 

There are all sorts of great materials there to support the important work you’re doing, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to help! Get started today, and, if you enjoy the activities, let us know. We love hearing how our materials work out when put to the test and will use your feedback for next year’s offerings!
