It's finally summer and most schools have now dismissed for the year.
While students are enjoying their well deserved break from their busy
schedules, many parents may be concerned that their children could lose
their learned skills and knowledge.
Although this is a common and justified concern, summer vacation does
not have to mean that students will experience a loss of learning.
*One solution - Sign up for tutoring services!
is a great time to master material covered during the previous
school year, or get ahead for the upcoming year.
-Tutoring is a one-on-one relationship, meaning that the tutor can
better identify the child's strengths and weaknesses while also reducing
the stress of a larger classroom environment (this is true during
anytime of the year)!
*Next, incorporate an educational experience into your vacation
-Heading to fun destination? Why not check out some local museums,
visit an important historical site, or hike through a national/state
park? Take advantage of any guided tours that are offered.
*Also try volunteer work
-Most children today have to complete volunteer work during their
academic careers whether it is for school, church, or to satisfy some
-Accumulating volunteer hours will be greatly beneficial for older
students as it will look great on scholarship and college applications.
-Consider a nearby library, your local chapter of the American Red
Cross, hospitals, etc.
-In short, volunteering = intellectual stimulation
Thanks and have a great summer!
