I know this last school year has been A LOT for all of us, parents, teachers and kids alike. But, if we do nothing else this summer, daily reading needs to continue in order to improve and maintain academic skills over the summer.
While the schools did their best to make a switch from classroom to online learning, let’s be honest, our kids’ summer vacation, as far as school is concerned, started a little earlier this year. Unfortunately, if summer days continue to be devoid of educational pursuits– a significant amount of what went into building your child’s brain during the school year will start to leak out.
Summer is the perfect time to get kids moving around and creating to fill their right brain needs. But, this summer looks a little different. I have found 39 activities to help your family get the summer off to a great start without risking your health.
If you have a visual learner, a reading program may be the last thing you want to think about this summer. Never fear – your local library knows how to make reading fun for your child, so it’s easy on you. Our local library, like so many others around the country, has a variety of special reading events throughout the summer to keep kids reading.
