Tips for Parents
Oh ... The Possibilities of Summer
Since your student is in the academic mindset, talking about a "summer curriculum" might make a lot of sense to her. This just means being intentional about the things she'd like to learn and experience this summer.
Maybe she's been talking about how she misses reading "real" books because she always has reading to do for class. This can go on her curriculum. Or maybe she's hoping to learn how to kayak or knit or ride a horse ... put it on the curriculum!
And make it a partnership by suggesting that the whole family write out your summer curriculums. Then share them so you can support one another in pursuit of these goals. Here's to a summer filled with learning!
