June 19th is National Summer Learning Day! What does that mean? In some parts of the U.S. there is year-round education, but for most, the school bell has rung for the last time and children are “free” for the summer. We know that children who are inactive during the summer can lose a months’ worth of learning which sets them back in the fall.
Other children who are engaged in activities (summer camp, sports, summer school, reading) can mitigate the loss and come back in the fall ready and raring to go.
So, take advantage of all there is to do. For ideas go to www.summerlearning.org and make this summer a time that your children, grandchildren and young friends put fun in every learning adventure.
