more important — than getting lost in a good book! Decline in reading ability,
known as “summer slide,” is a real risk and BrainPOP offers ideas for ways to

Make math real and FUN this summer! Discover, play, and learn with your family.
Some children are math mavens, excited by the challenge of a mathematical
puzzle. Others are more reluctant, lacking confidence in their math ability.
A child’s mindset about math, or any school subject, can greatly affect
achievement. Studies find that the more positive and confident a child feels,
the greater success she or he will have. Luckily, summertime offers a perfect
opportunity for children to discover that math is REAL and FUN. Following are
ideas and tips for making real-life connections and experiencing math in action.
Have a heart-healthy summer! Discover, play, and learn with your family.
From swimming and skipping rope to hiking and hopscotch, make this summer
a healthy and fit one. According to the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, children require an hour of physical activity every day, including
aerobic and muscle strengthening. So, whether or not your child is an athlete,
here are some ideas that will get hearts pumping and work out the brain, too!
Do the WRITE thing this summer! Discover, play, and learn with your family.
Writing helps children become better readers and reading helps them
become better writers! Luckily, writing is a natural and seamless part of our
daily lives, from sending emails to journaling. Keep this important skill from
slipping this summer by weaving writing into fun summertime activities.
