Summer Learning


It is hard to believe that June is almost over and summer is near. For those families looking to give their children a head start for September, the single best thing you can do is encourage reading. The Calgary Public Library has the Ultimate Summer Challenge underway, and looks like a great way to get kids reading.  Research has shown that reading will strengthen your brain, increase ability to empathize, build vocabulary, improve spelling, reduce stress, helps with a good nights sleep, helps alleviate depression symptoms, and could help you live longer. 

Another great way to support summer learning is through Kahn Academy. They have a multitude of free courses to keep kids thinking​ and fresh. Of course everyone needs a break, but a bit of reading and some math will help prevent summer learning loss. ​
