Slide into Summer

summer_reading_slide

It’s hard to believe another school year has come and gone. I’m so proud of all my Early Literacy kiddos! They have worked SO hard this year, and I know you have worked hard with them at home as well. So, now it is time to to leap into summer and enjoy the sprinkler, the playground, the road trips, the sunscreen. Yippee!

While you’re busy enjoying the sun, please remember the importance of keeping a literacy routine going throughout July and August. It will help maintain all the skills your kiddos have worked hard to develop from September-June, and prevent the unfortunate “summer slide”. (See the infographic below for more on summer slide.) Keep your routine manageable, keep it fun, and do it together! Check out Calgary’s Read’s Summer Reading Calendar for plenty of affordable and fun ideas.

As always, please e-mail me with any questions or concerns. Have a wonderful summer and see you in the fall!

Miss I 🙂
