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.

Keep it hot (or cold)! No one likes cold soup or warm, wilted salad. Use a thermos or ice pack in your child's lunch box to help keep his lunch fresh until it's time to eat.
