Here we are, nearing the end of July, and perhaps as parents you have exhausted all the planned excursions and activities set out for the summer. The stores are already advertising Back to School (yikes!) and it won’t be long before everyone is stocking up on new shoes and backpacks, and gearing up for the next grade.In the meantime, it’s important to realize that students can lose two to three months in their academic skills during the summer break. To that end, we would like to share some suggestions from a favourite website of ours, Edutopia. These seven steps for maintaining and strengthening academic skills are not overly time consuming, and can actually be quite engaging.
Enjoy the rest of the summer ~ looking forward to a strong start in September for everyone!
