Summer Learning

“No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers’ dirty looks!”

That’s what we used to think when school let out — 3 glorious months when we could forget everything we learned and simply spend hours lying on the lawn, looking for cloud shapes.

But many of us are parents now, and we know that learning never really stops.  Though summer may mean less structured days, it’s important to watch for opportunities to stimulate our children’s brains during those long summer days.

When adults read to young children, children learn that the dots, lines and squiggles on a page form words, and those words form stories.


When children learn to read stories, they can read to learn all kinds of other things, and whole world of knowledge opens up to them.


When adults improve their own reading and writing skills, they are empowered to improve their life.

When we all work together to promote literacy, we are empowered to improve our community.
