Summer Sizzle:
 
Here are some helpful educational tips to keep learning fun during the summer months!

1) Keep writing skills fresh, have your child take a notebook and decorate the cover.  During family outings or trips, have them write down three things that happened each day.  They can draw a picture with each entry. They can then share their work with you.


2) To keep math skills up, when you're making a purchase, they can estimate the cost.  They can also count change after you have made the purchase. 

3) Set aside 20 minutes of reading time each day.  Put a beach blanket on the floor and make the area where the read extra special.


4) If you're taking a family vacation, grab a map and plot the trip as a family.  Plan where you'll make stops, estimate times.  Research the history of the place you will be visiting.

Remember: Fun is in the eye of the beholder . . . Enjoy your summer!
