I would like to say BRAVO and CONGRATULATIONS to all students for their great efforts to achieve their learning goals! Thank you for being kind, friendly, and for showing your BEST!

IMG_0935.JPG

During summer vacation, it is important to spend time reading books and practice writing using journals on a regular basis. You can also try some of these math activities to make your summer full of learning fun!

Here are some easy tips for learning:

  • View road trips as a mobile classroom.  Let them explore about the place – to gain more educational experiences in a natural environment. 
  • Use every day errands as learning opportunities. Review counting numbers and comparing items with more or less while at the grocery stores.
  • Transform routine chores into fun lessons. Give them the opportunity to be a good helper and integrate natural math lesson using measuring, sorting and counting.
  • Turn children's collections into math lessons. Children love to collect and gather items, especially at the park, beach, and forest or even in the backyard. Encourage children to sort their items by size, color, shape or texture.
  • Follow your child's interests to guide learning.  Kids will be actively engaged in a real experience that is based on their specific interests.

    We hope everyone will have a great summer!
