While the summer of 2020 will look different from past summers, finding online opportunities for summer learning are beneficial in many of the same ways as face-to-face opportunities.
1. Read for pleasure every day for 30 minutes.
2. Visit museums and public libraries (Public libraries offer lots of free programming including clubs and story times for kids). While many of these public institutions will be closed during the summer of 2020, many still have services and activities available online. Be sure to check out your local library and your favorite museums online.
3. Have family discussions about interesting topics or share family stories at meal times or during long car trips.
4. Write in a journal every day
5. Watch a movie as a family and discuss it afterward. Or listen to an audiobook together.
6. Use math in the real world - cooking, budgeting, calculating, change at the store, etc.
7. Review and practice key skills in Math, Reading, Social Studies, and Science.
8. Set summer goals and work towards meeting them.
9. Aim for 60 minutes of physical activity at least 5 days a week.
10. Read the AIS-R Summer Learning Guide
