To maintain their skills and knowledge, continue to have your child read silently and aloud. Students are expected to read 500,000 words in grade four. These words do not include textbook readings, so make plans to visit the library this summer. Don't forget to practice math facts too. It only takes a few minutes a day. Some families have kids earn screen time. For every minute spent reading or memorizing math facts equals time on a device.
Have fun, relax, and enjoy the time you have with your kids. They will be out of our classrooms and houses before you know it, but always in our hearts.
