Tip Sheets for Parents
From: Brampton Guardian
The public School board is providing parents with tips to help children continue developing reading, writing and math skills during summer vacation.
The Peel District School Board's Web site www.peelschools.org, is providing access to tip sheets and suggested parent/child activities to continue learning experiences for young and older students outside the school environment.
Studies show that children who remain active learners outside the classroom during summer months are better prepared to return to school in the fall.
The Parents Boost Learning section of the Web site features learning activities for pre-school children, in addition to elementary, middle and secondary school students.
The board's Website includes more than 45 tip sheets as well as advice for choosing quality summer programs and suggestions for various activities to help kids learn.
"Providing a learning experience doesn't need to be an expensive endeavour," said Brian Woodland, Peel board's communications director. "As a parent , you can turn any ordinary activity into fun and memorable way to learn."
