Have you started hearing this yet?
Roughly half-way through summer and MyChild has apparently forgotten everything she owns and has at her disposal to work with.
I created this:
Do 2 pages of your Summer Math Journal – MyChild’s school sent home a workbook to help prevent the summer slide. In the past, I’ve purchased these.
Do 1 activity in your Summer Reading Journal – Same as the Summer Math Journal, her school sent this one home, too. I’ve used this one in the past.
Read 2 chapters of a book – current favorites include: Owl Diaries, Critter Club, Dogman, and Amulet
Read 3 picture books: Current favorites include: Dragons Love Tacos (1 & 2), I am Rosa Parks, and Duck for President
