What are you doing to avoid summer slide during school break?
This phenomenon is often referred to as "summer slide," and here's more about it in an article by Education.com partner, Reading is Fundamental: http://www.education.com/reference/article/Ref_...
Info about summer slide can also be found here: http://www.education.com/topic/learning-during-...
The good news: Taking a break from school doesn’t have to mean taking a break from learning. While you likely don’t want to torture your child with spelling tests and math drills this summer, it is a good idea to keep his/her brain (and body) active during the school break!
So what is your family currently doing or planning to do this summer to keep the learning ongoing? How are you incorporating learning into your everyday routine? We'd love to hear from you!
