Keep Up Those Skills

Hi!  Summer is here and school is out!  Kids are saying, “Yeah!”  Moms are wondering what to do!

It’s important to keep up childrens’ skills during the summer.  It makes the fall easier :)

Here are a few ideas:

Have children read everyday — 30 minutes would be great!  Let them find “fun” places to read!  Maybe make tents or forts outside.

Practice math facts!  Once you are fast at facts, math is SO much easier!

My favorite — Write!  Look for my post about a LifeBook.  This is where children collect little bits and pieces of there life in a notebook.  Then they pick a bit or piece and write about it.  It’s fun to collect all kinds of things that are special to your child/children.  I even have sand in my LifeBook :)  After they write, I have a great idea for them :)
