Summer is finally here !
Research by the International Reading Association has shown that children who do not read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and the loss of that knowledge is a cumulative and has a long-term effect. To help with that, we have a great summer reading sale going on now at our ebay store. Go on over and stock up on books and teaching staples for a summer full of reading and learning!
So take the time out of school right now and incorporate learning and reading along with all those other fun activities, like camp and lazy days at the beach. Some ideas of what your child can do to keep the knowledge from the last school year:
- Write Stories in the sand while at the beach.
- Write a journal of all the summer activities
- Join a summer reading contest at your local library or bookshop
- Get some books out of the library of places you will visit and activities that you have planned
- Read and find items on the shopping list
- Help prepare meals by reading the recipes and measuring
- Read a book and re-enact it with friends
- Make a game and write out the rules for the whole family to follow
Enjoy your Summer reading adventures ! Stop by the store for many books for summer reading at great prices!
