At a new school? What to tell your child’s teacher on Day 1.
Summer is supposed to be a break from learning, and therefore a break from reading. But letting education slide over the summer can set your child back in September. Summer slide is when a child loses previously acquired academic skills or knowledge over a lengthy break.
Moving to a brand new place every three or so years is just life. We arrive, we live, we pack, we move. It can be super easy to get caught up in the day-to-day stuff that we forget to explore our new hometowns.
Tis the season! Moving house is tough, especially when it happens every three or so years. It’s hard for school-aged kids: saying good-bye to ALL their friends leaving their school and teachers having to make new friends going to a brand new school, all alone But there are ways to make it easier
But that doesn’t mean that your student should stop learning! In fact, studies have shown that a student who reads over the summer will return to school in the fall with less regression.
