Why is it important to instill learning over the Summer?
The long-awaited break from school is finally here and for kindergarteners, that can mean unlimited hours for playing, exploring, and letting their curious minds run wild. However, research has shown that children in this age group stand to lose a lot of learning gains over the summer.
To ensure that our children don’t fall behind, it’s essential to keep learning over the summer on an ongoing basis even if that doesn’t mean it involves a pencil and paper.
Simple activities like reading regularly, practicing writing, and simple math problems can prevent the summer slide and keep learners on track.
You can write outside with chalk or count the strawberries you’re picking from the farm, school can look very different in the summer.
If you’re taking a trip or camping this summer, use that to learn more about the place you’re traveling to or the beaches you’ll be visiting. Learning can happen anywhere you go this summer.
