Build Background Knowledge

May 22,2018

Summer, when school is out, is a great time to help your children build additional background knowledge of the world and to improve their reading skills.

If you go on vacation to the beach, NYC, or the Grand Canyon, consider following up with age-appropriate books that help your children learn more about your destination. Or, when you hear the news about a volcano erupting in Hawaii, show your children videos of that online and follow up with a book about volcanoes.

You’ll be helping your children better understand the world around them. Plus, this will help keep their minds sharp and ready for school in the fall.
