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.
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!
