It’s almost time for summer vacation! Students and families will get a break from the school year to enjoy the good weather.
But while kids enjoy freedom, teachers hope parents can help students hold on to what they’ve learned during the school year by taking some simple steps. That’s because, after studying hard all year, educators worry about the “summer slide.”
“There’s a lot of research – 100 years of it – that shows kids lose ground in reading and math in summer if they’re not active,” said Boston After School and Beyond‘s Chris Smith.
