We can learn every day, even during the summer. One great idea for summer learning is to keep a journal. Journaling about the fun and exciting places that you visit during summer provides a real reason for students to write. Encourage lots of details in student writing. Attach real items to the journal page, such as a photo, brochure, or sticker. Adding this scrapbook feel to a journal makes it very real for children, and it's a nice keepsake too. Take opportunities as they arise to become learning opportunities, such as reading a map. As always, continue reading and practicing math facts this summer too!
