Is your child prepared for grade two? Should you allow your child to have the summer off to play and avoid books altogether? Or should you cram in as much extra curriculum work as possible to ensure they’re prepared and ready to excel in grade two? We can help you with all your questions and how to prepare your child for grade two.
With summer learning loss being a significant threat to your child’s learning development during the summer months, how can you keep your children from falling behind while helping them prepare for what’s ahead in grade two?
Preparing your child for grade two while aiming to avoid summer learning loss.
The first step to preparing your child for grade two while avoiding summer learning loss is to not stress about it. As parents, we often worry about ensuring our children are on track with their learning. That worry can become increasingly more vigorous with the concerns around pandemic learning loss.
Then there’s the concern about summer learning loss and how most children lose 2.6 months of math skills, two months of reading skills and the equivalent of one month of overall learning during the summer.
How can we help our children catch up from the learning loss they’ve already experienced, stay on track and not lose more learning knowledge during the summer months?
Reading, writing, math and learning are essential skills your child must continually practice to develop correctly, especially during the summer.
