According to the National Center for Summer Learning (NCSL), children experience learning losses when not engaged in educational activities for extended periods of time. Commonly referred to as summer slide, this overall decline in learning leaves many parents wondering how they can keep their children's minds actively engaged outside of the classroom. Get them involved in a summer arts program. There are also a lot of fun and educational activities at your local library.
Another way to keep your children's minds active this summer is to be sure they read Kidsville News! Encourage them to work the puzzles, read the educational articles and draw a picture and send it to Truman! Also, be sure to click on the Parent/teacher resource link on our website at www.kidsvillenews.com\Northernny, download the worksheets that correspond to Kidsville News content and work with your children to complete them. There are lots of interesting articles that you and your children can share. The August edition will be distributed at the beginning of August. Pick one up at the library or any of the business listed in our ad in your local Denton Publication. Kidsville News is the free, fun and educational monthly newspaper for the children, parents, and teachers of the North Country, serving grades K-5. If your child is not receiving Kidsville News please contact your school or our offices at 873-6368 x207.
