Right now, the 2020-2021 school year seems worlds away. It’s understandable that families might not have “How can we prevent summer learning loss and prepare for the next grade level?” at the top of their Important Questions list.
Of course, that question is in all caps, bolded, and underlined on Nurturing Wisdom’s list! We know that the “summer slump” (students’ loss of academic knowledge over summer break) is real. How does that translate when kids will have been out of school for what amounts to two summer breaks in a row? How do we prevent that loss and even help children make gains before they return to school? What should students work on now to be fully prepared for the demands of the coming school year?
In our Looking Forward series, we’ll look at different age groups and give you some practical strategies to help your child grow over the next several months. Check back soon if you’re grade isn’t up yet!
