Why Summer Matters

by | | 0 comment(s)

For many children, learning slows way down (or even stops) during the summer months. And a total educational unplug can cause students to lose some of the information that was learned that year, but engaging in a little bit of learning can help when kids dive back into school in the fall.

Learning all summer long? Don’t panic! We are not suggesting year-round schooling. We are talking about consciously striving to provide learning opportunities each day to keep kids’ academic skills sharp. Join us as we explore digital and reading resources, hands-on activities, and fun recipes we have to help combat the summer slide.

Reading Resources

Do you know children who are fascinated by dinosaurs, bugs, the sun and solar system, robots and coding? Are there any sports fanatics, space explorers, or superheroes at home? Do your kids love reading about adorable animals, famous fairy tales, whimsical creatures, and more? Start with a book… and open up their world of discovery and learning!

We've compiled a list, which includes some of our very favorite high-interest series to help jumpstart your child's summer adventure.

World Book wants to accelerate student learning with timely resources that motivate students and inspire teachers over the summer, in the upcoming school year, and beyond.
