I hope that everyone’s summer is off to a GREAT start!
I wanted to remind everyone that I strongly encourage your child to continue reading 20 minutes each day (Epic! and RazKids will remain available through this summer), writing 2-3 sentences in a journal each day, and working on MobyMax Fact Fluency for 5 minutes each day. This will help your child to retain all of the skills and knowledge learned this year!
Below are some free summer learning opportunities, check them out!
Free Summer Learning Opportunities:
Camp Kinda: Camp Kinda is a free virtual summer experience designed to keep kids in grades K-8 engaged, curious, and having fun—even if they’re stuck at home. It’s like summer camp… kinda.
MDE Summer Resources: Many resources including elementary, middle, and high school literacy and math, as well as social-emotional links are just a click away from The Michigan Department of Education.
Virtual Field Trips Families can join their students on virtual field trips to enhance student learning.
Suggestions include: Pure Michigan Virtual Travel: “Whether it’s from your couch, kitchen or patio, stay connected with each other in Pure Michigan.” Virtual field trips around the world: Virtual trips, Museum visits, and Webcams “Take a trip around the world while staying home.”
