Tips for parents on how to plan activities | SehndeWeb

After two full years of pandemic schooling, districts across the country are tackling the problem of learning regression. Many strategies involve taking advantage of extra summer school, but what do the experts say about where parents should start?

First, summer learning doesn’t have to be 100% academic. Parents and schools can succeed by focusing on children’s interests, suggested Aaron Dworkin, CEO of the National Summer Learning Association.

“The first is to find your students’ passion,” Dworkin said.

Summer camps can build social skills and independence, while providing access to essential mentors. For older teens, Dworkin said a summer job is one of the best forms of hands-on, real-world learning.

“Look at summer as this chance to work on your playing. What do you want to become? Better at singing, better at piano, better at driving – you’ve got the chance,” Dworkin said.
