“I’m booooooored!” It’s the sound of the gains made by this year’s students slowly slipping away as they veg out in front of one kind of a screen or another. Movies and video games will keep our kids entertained and…quiet, but there is no mental challenge to maintain the learning from the school year. We all need a break, and summer vacation is the perfect time to enjoy some much-deserved relaxation. A good goal for teachers as summer approaches is to help students and parents find intriguing, fun, and memorable ways to work out their brains all summer long. Summer should be relaxing, fun, and engaging…not boring at all.
