How to maintain a learning environment during the summer

Posted on Posted in Blog
When parents and families are involved in their children’s learning, children earn better grades, enroll in higher-level programs and are more likely to continue their French learning in the long term.
Here are some suggestions:

1. Spend quality time with your children! Take the time to look at them in their eyes and tell them that you love them dearly 🙂 Be positive and encouraging when you teach them!

2. Reading any time, anywhere! Research shows that even if you read 1 to 5 books during the summer, you will help your child in keeping up his reading skills.
3. Join the Library Book Club for the summer. The libraries have tons of free activities organised for children during the summer.
4. Borrow French/English books. Pick some of them for your child and let them pick some of their own.
5. Collect pamphlets and organize these into a scrapbook. Summarize the main ideas from these.
6. Sketch places of interest and write up a brief story about each place
7. Printing or Writing: write few sentences or keep  a diary of a trip or of a daily visit. Be consistent in providing a daily or bi-weekly practice for their writing!
8. For a complete list of online activities, visit the Resource page of My French Club. Here are just some of them:
