Be a Star


Make a scrapbook that contains pictures of your child doing summer learning activities. Include samples that show his progress. Your child can share this book with others — especially his new teacher when school starts in the fall.

You could also create a blog where your child can discuss and display his summer learning (articles, pictures, books read, etc.). Family members or teachers can visit the Web page, praising your child's work from a distance and keeping the energy flowing.

Kids' artwork or writing can even be submitted to LD Online to be featured on the website, which makes kids feel great.
