Write – Take a moment for writing. My daughter’s 2nd grade teacher gave each of her students a small notebook. She told them if the filled up almost all of it with paragraphs or stories, she would buy them each a popsicle every Friday for the first month of school. What fun motivation to get writing! You could do the same with your children and perhaps another summer treat.
Library Trips – The library is the perfect place for preventing the Summer Slide. Libraries have summer reading programs to encourage children to read. Libraries can also suggest books for your kids, even up to high school level. And the best part is, it’s free!
