Have a Great Summer!
Summer is a very enjoyable season for children, but we must not forget the academic skills the students have acquired.
Have your child practice cursive handwriting by copying words in cursive or writing letters to friends and relatives. The more they use this skill the better they will become.
Also, I encourage you to have your child use their math skills this summer. Give them the opportunity to use money in real life situations. Practice addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts using flash cards. There are also several free math game websites that would be beneficial for your child to play.
Summer visits to the library can be rewarding and relaxing. If time permits, ask your child about the books they are reading or have them read to a grandparent or a younger child.
In the area of language, encourage your child to write this summer. It could be a letter to a friend or a relative, or perhaps a short story about a fun time or even a poem.
Your child has worked hard to attain useful skills this year which could be expanded on this summer.
I wish all of you a healthy and happy summer. Thanks for a great year and all your fine cooperation.
Have a great summer!
