***Pointers for Parents***
Preventing the “summer slide” is a great way for parents and their children to connect AND ensure a great start to the next school year. Students often arrive in the fall with “rusty” habits and skills. They haven’t lost them entirely; they are just out of practice.
Here are some ways kids can stay sharp when it comes to their learning:
*While you may think that summer is the time to give children a break, it's actually a great time to show kids that it's important to make reading a part of everyday life. Summer is a great time to read for enjoyment, not just homework and parents can encourage this by modeling it themselves! Not only will this develop reading skills, but it enhances vocabulary, spelling and comprehension.
*Let students help plan the meals, including following recipes and shopping. This teaches measurements, comparing prices, making change and much more.
*The computer isn’t just for games! Let students do the research for your vacation; read about the area or exhibits before they go , the best route to take, the number of miles and travel time, admission prices, etc. Writing about their experiences will create a lasting memory for their scrapbook.
*Look up easy to do, safe Science projects at home with common household products. This involves reading, measuring, and learning from the results.
Remember-quality time is the best gift you can give your child during these formative years. Just giving them your undivided attention and talking to them gives them vocabulary and grammar skills.
Have a great productive summer!
