High school reading builds upon what is learned in elementary and middle school; in addition, students focus on word study.

Unless information is used regularly, it will be forgotten. This is why it is important to help your student think about academic subjects during school breaks. Here are some fun ways to keep his or her mind active. Visit the library and participate in a reading program if it is available. Take trips to parks and nature centers. Buy simple science experiments to do together. Play educational games. Review math and nutrition by cooking meals together. Allow the student to explore interests such as art. Buy puzzle books. Enroll your student in summer camps. Limit television and computer time. School breaks should be fun, but keeping the mind active will help the transition back into academic success.
