*Print in color, cut, and place the cards on a key ring or display in your classroom or in your home.

Parents work with their child to avoid the "summer slide." What is summer slide?
Summer is the perfect time for students to relax, but it’s also a time when summer learning loss can occur. This is called the “summer slide.”
*By reinforcing reading and writing skills during off time, parents can create a summer reading list
*celebrate or reward their child when they finish each book or review task.
*Set small amounts of time aside weekly or daily to make it fun and not seem like a daunting event.
