June Blog: Summer Fun and Learning Activities for Kids

Summer Fun and Learning Activities for Kids

This month's blog is Summer Fun and Learning Activities for Kids.

The greatest thing about learning during the summer is that you don't have to teach anything. Just benefit from long days and favorable weather and do fun stuff together!

Even if your child's schedule is busy during the school year and he or she attends all possible extracurriculars, there is still a chance that some interest is left out. The best way to find out is to ask them what they would like to do.

Guest Blogger Jeanna Bray is an educator, a parent, and a writer based in Seattle. She believes in life-long learning and that curiosity saved a cat. She also collaborates with online projects that promote education and literacy.

      2. How to Structure Learning Stations Online:
        While learning stations are most magical in the brick-and-mortar classroom, they can be facilitated during remote learning with a few adjustments. You might not be able to replicate the human-to-human collaboration or kinesthetic learning, but you can still use learning stations as a way to scaffold and “chunk” content/skills into manageable, engaging parts. Thankfully, technology like Google Docs, Slides, Forms, and Classroom make organizing learning stations easy.

        Learn more by visiting: HERE.

      3. Drag-and-Drop Google Slides:
        Jan Parker writes: "As an ed tech coach, I often get asked about how to create a document that students can type in without messing up the information the teacher has created. For instance, in a fill-in-the-blank plus word bank style exit ticket. Or, a graphic organizer that won’t get messed up when students try to add content. There are several products that can accomplish this, but by far my favorite because of its simplicity is google slides."
