How many times as a teacher have you witnessed the dreaded “summer slide” in students after their return from summer break? Students who previously showed tremendous progress at the end of the school year are suddenly unable to demonstrate previously mastered skills?
Students can often miss out on opportunities that are both learning and entertaining to keep their brains engaged over the summer when there is an absence of ideas, activities, and support at home. Teachers can help students and parents to make the most out of their summer holidays by designing a list of activities with ample opportunities to exercise brain power and to have fun.
