Summer Learning Activities

Hello Friends,

        Hands &  Voices is supporting you and your child on your journey!

This week on #TogetherThursday, as summer continues to unfold, there is the topic of “Summer Learning”

What is “Summer Learning”?

Unlike “Traditional” learning or schooling, or other structured supports that are possible with sitting down and studying, such as reading, writing, math etc, “Summer learning” is a new take on ensuring that your child uses the great skills they learned throughout the year and applies them!

  • Scholastic has put together some great integrations for students in grades K-8th grade: Link 

The Key Take aways are embedding learning into everyday summer activities such as talking about a “beach activity budget” for snacks at the corner store of the boardwalk or counting how many stops the bus has to make on the map to the park from home.

  • Some other, more structured examples of this can be found here for all ages for older students that might be taking algebra or need more decoding support made into games: Link

What fun integrated Summer Learning are you planning on doing with your child?

Together, We Can,

Ms. Leslie
