• Helpful Hints for Summer Learning:

    2.  Check books out from the Public Library and look into their summer reading program.  Barnes and Noble has a summer reading incentive program as well.
     
    3. Utilize the Moby Max website.  
     
    4.  Write a summary of what you read using a beginning, middle and end.   Write about the problem and solution.  Write about the characters.  
     
    5.  Practice basic addition and subtraction facts from 0-20.
     
    6.  Practice math at the IXL website.  (your log in from First grade will work all summer). 
     
    7.  Write a story about your summer adventures and draw a picture to match your writing.  Make sure your story has a beginning, middle, and end.  Check for capitalization, spelling, and punctuation.
