Summer Practice

I can’t believe there are only a few weeks left in the school year! (Can’t wait!)

While summer is a great time to relax, there are a few key academic items you can focus on to help your child/students:

  • Work on a few sight words a week–master reading and spelling them.
  • Continue to have your child read at least 15 minutes a day–you can take turns reading aloud.
  • Work on improving fluency with math facts–this is foundational and will help your child overall in math.
  • Work on writing–can be a good sentence a day, a paragraph, or journal writing–mix it up.

Doing these will help your child transition back into school in the fall, and will help retain those good skills learned during the previous school year. They can also be done without all the normal pressures of a school year. Try to make it fun!
