Students have worked hard developing and learning throughout the year. The summer break is a chance for them to synthesize their learning, to relax pursuing social and physical activities and to maintain the skills they have acquired. Daily reading of a variety of print materials (magazines, books, comics, letters, instructions, recipes, etc.); writing lists, messages, letters, stories, travel journals; using math to estimate grocery bills, plan travel budgets, calculate driving distances and estimated times of arrival, count anything and everything, look for patterns - all are ways to ensure your children practice and maintain literacy and thinking skills in a playful manner. Hopefully, every child has lots of time to play outdoors, meet with friends and family, and laugh every day.
Wishing a safe, healthy and happy summer for all!
