- Truly enjoy and take advantage of the unscheduled time summer offers. Students need this time to recharge and take advantage of the unique learning that unstructured time can provide. Also, there is nothing wrong with a little boredom here and there! Learning how to deal with unscheduled time is a lifeskill that should be practiced.
- READ. Yes, read. Please ensure that your children read anything and everything they choose to get their hands on. What should they read? Anything their heart desires. Nothing motivates children to read more than being invited to choose their own books. If your child chooses it, it is worthy of being read.
- Visit libraries, museums, parks, and natural outdoor spaces. I know I'll be doing this all summer, and I cannot wait to talk about these adventures in books and in our natural work with my new fifth graders in August!
See you at Nixon for our first day of school on August 15th!
Have a great first day of middle school and keep in touch!
