Summer Tips
Your child has worked so hard this year and has learned a lot! We do not want them to backslide over summer. In order to keep them on this path and help prepare them for first grade, here are some tips to work on this summer with your child!
~Read every day for at least 20 minutes discussing character, setting, beginning, middle and end.
~Keep practicing Spalding Phonograms (VERY IMPORTANT) using the Spalding Application.
~Keep reading on Raz-Kids.
~Have your child journal over the summer. Practice writing sentences that start with a capital letter and end with a punctuation mark.
~Keep practicing your math facts.

~Get outside for science and explore/discover this summer!
~Check out The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge or check out your local library reading programs- they generally give prizes for a set number of minutes or books read.

We appreciate all of your support this year! Have a wonderful and relaxing summer with your family.
