Keeping Students Engaged Over the Summer

Avoid the Summer Silde

Teachers and parents sometimes worry about their kids falling behind due to the summer break. Don't worry about it. Kids need a break too. However, summer time is a great time for remedial work for weaker students. Parents can get in on this because there are more and more free internet resources that are available for parents to use with their children at home. Aside from my favorite internet resources, I also recommend AvoidtheSummerSlide.com for parents. It has free resources just for parents sorted by subject area and grade levels and it's brought to you by Teachers Notebook

Free internet educational sites

If you're a teacher (and school is still in session) you can give copies of this flyer - Avoid the Summer Slide Campaign to your students' parents so that you can help them fight the summer slide!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
