    Keep Learning Fresh All Summer Long

    I vary my summer suggestions depending on my class. Some years I send a copy of the activity book Set Sail for Summer Grade 1 Review Carson-Dellosa Publishing Company, Inc. (Copyright permission is given to the teacher to make copies if they purchase a copy.)

    Other years, I send the following letter:

    Dear Parents,
    Summer vacation is almost here! To keep skills strong and learning fresh, try some of the following ideas...

    Join the San Antonio Public Library summer reading program.
    Read every day...this summer would be a great time to choose a chapter book and read aloud each evening as a family.
    Keep a vacation journal if you travel this summer. Ask your child to write about and illustrate a journal page for each day of your vacation.
    Bake cookies together (great way to practice reading and math skills!)
    Start a collection...baseball cards, bugs, dolls, coins, marbles, etc. Check out a book from the library to learn more about your collection.
    Practice addition and subtraction facts using fact cards
    Write a letter to Mrs. Miller to tell her what you are doing over the the summer.
    Have a family game night on Friday and play board games and eat pizza.
