Summer Learning Fun!

It is not uncommon for students to experience what is sometimes called the "summer slide," and I'm not talking about a slide into a pool. Just like sports and music, reading and math require regular practice; a 2-3 month break from practice means that kids return to school with brains that are out of shape. Below you will find a variety of resources to help you help your kids keep their brains in shape!
