FOR EDUCATORS: ENCOURAGING LEARNING OVER THE SUMMER

Summer is a wonderful time for students and teachers to rest and take a break. It is also important to continue learning over the summer to avoid regression and stimulate brain development. 
Teachers can share PBS Kid’s Summer Reading Chart with families as a way to track reading over the summer. Share this Sesame Street Physical Activity Resource Packet with families before summer break to encourage fine and gross motor skill development and to keep your students moving!
