3 Steps to Summer Success

NATALIE MORALES, reporting:

Did you know some children lose up to two months of math and reading skills over the summer months? As schools are winding down, here are three ways you can prepare now so your child goes back to school next year without needing a refresher. One - Talk to your child’s teacher! Ask if there are books she recommends reading over the summer, and if there are certain skills - like multiplication or spelling - that your child might need to work on this summer. Two - Get a library card! The local library is a great resource for kids when school is out. You can even start a book club with other children in the neighborhood to turn reading into the “cool” thing to do this summer. Three - Stock up on old boxes. Yes, boxes. Kids’ imaginations can run wild with nothing but old cardboard boxes. They can be forts, castles, or cut into costumes. Unstructured play time is just as important as keeping up to speed on academics.
