With the school year over, it’s time to focus on strengthening the academic gains that your child achieved during the year. Summer is the perfect time for reinforcing and expanding those academic gains. Spending time reading and writing during the summer builds good vocabulary, encourages creative writing and develops comprehension skills.
Be sure that you and your child spend at least 30 minutes each day reading.
Here are 12 excellent reading and writing activities that you can do during the summer:
1. Visit the library – Make visiting the library a weekly event. Allow your children to get their own library card.
2. Read a poem – Choose a poem and read it with your child, discussing how the poem rhymes.
