Title 1 Spring 2016

Hatboro-Horsham School District

Stop Summer Slide!

If students laze away the days of summer without using their minds, they can lose up to a month of learning--especially in reading and math. Stop the summer slide and keep your child engaged with these fun, brain-friendly activities.

Teach Mini-Lessons

Transform everyday activities into learning opportunities. Children can count change, read directions for a trip, write a shopping list, or calculate a recipe's measurements.

Sneak Learning into Family Trips

If your family is able to take a vacation during the summer, include stops at zoos, children's museums, or historic sites. Have your child help you plot out the journey using maps and keep a journal along the way. Older children can tally up the miles, keep track of expenses, or compute gas mileage.

Point, Shoot and Write

Some families have access to a digital camera, iPad, or camera phone. Snap pictures and then encourage your child to write a silly caption for each photo. Not feeling that ambitious? Cut out some pictures from a magazine and have your child write original captions for those.
