Summer conjures up images of lazy sun-filled days, hanging around the pool and splashing at the lake or beach. But both parents and teachers worry that all of this carefree summer fun causes a little brain-drain – and kids tend to backslide on the skills they’ve worked so hard to master. Summer reading is one way for kids to hang on to the strides they’ve made – but what about summer writing? Something more stimulating than “What I Did on my Summer Vacation…”
Try this collection of Summer Writing Activities – not only will it engage kids in a satisfying summer writing experience that will keep their newfound skills fresh, but it includes meaningful parent involvement (with introductory info and tips for parents included) but it also can yield some amazing summer keepsakes that both kids and parents will want to keep for years to come. You can send this packet home with the kiddos at the end of school, or email it to them as a summer surprise. So, roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer AND some awesome summer writing!
