The good news is that summer slide is easy to prevent, and you can help! Make sure that your child reads for at least 20 minutes every day, and find opportunities to practice math facts and play math games. Check at your local library and/or bookstore to find out more about summer reading programs for kids. Check out the "Helpful Links" section of my website for links to learning websites that students have been using in school all year. Learning opportunities are all around!
The following websites, which we have used in school all year, should still be available for you and your child to use this summer.

And don't forget that summertime is a time for having fun, getting outside, and being active! Our class has loved using GoNoodle as a way to help us stay active this year, and now you can sign up for a parent account to gain access to "Camp GoNoodle" this summer.
