Keep Kids Brains Active Over the Summer!


Keeping your child's brain active over the summer can help them be better prepared when school starts in September.  Laura Dillon with Oregon Connections Academy says she's seen a difference in kids that stay engaged in learning.  "I know from being a teacher for over 15 years and having my own kids; that if there isn't some active learning going on and some purposeful activities going on over the summer, even just a couple of time a week, then there is loss of those skills and concepts that have been taught over the school year."

 

Dillion says even just reading together a few times a week is helpful.  Or take advantage of current events,  such as the election this yea0,r and make a game of researching how elections work.  The Oregon Connections Academy website has more tips and ideas.  We have a link on our "Links" page.
