Keep Learning this Summer
Keep the kids learning all summer long by visitng the library and taking field trips.Together, you and the child can decide on weekly themes and try these ideas.
Borrow a library book about the child's favorite topics such as oceans or outer space. For example, you might read The Ocean Alphabet Bookby Jerry Palotta or The Planetsby Gail Gibbons. For the child interested in the ocean take a field trip to the aquarium, tropical fish store and as an employee questions about the animals that live in the sea. Or, go to a planetarium or space museum for the child that loves outer space. Viewing hands-on exhibits, seeing shows, and reading plaques with help kids learn more while they are having fun.
