Even though another school year has drawn to a close, that doesn't mean that the learning has come to an end until September. There are several ways you can have your children learn new things and practice their skills throughout the summer. The tips below are just a few suggestions…
Reading- Set aside time every day to read. Allow your child to stay up an extra 15 minutes…just to read a good book!
Writing-Send an e-mail or note to a friend your child hasn't seen since school ended.
Math- Measure ingredients for cooking or materials for building a project.
Science-Plant a garden to learn more about how plants grow.
Social Studies- Use the internet and a map to learn more about a vacation destination.
PE- Ride bike, walk, swim, and play outside daily.
Health- Visit a Farmer’s Market (or the produce department in a local grocery store) and try a new kind of fruit or vegetable.
Art- Use household supplies to create an artistic sculpture or design.
Music- Listen to variety of music and talk about favorite musicians, groups, songs, and styles.
Don’t let three months of summer vacation prevent your child from continuing to develop their skills for the next grade level. Whatever your son/daughter may be interested in, please keep them learning!
