This post is all about Summer Bridge Activities for that gap between grade changes. My son is heading into third grade so I have grade 2/3 activities books for him. It has some refreshers from second grade learning and prepares him for 3rd grade skills. They also include a summer reading list with suggested titles for books at this grade level. Reading is a great daily activity and I highly recommend at the very least you have them read 20+ minutes a day so they do not fall behind as statistics show they will-up to 2 months behind. However, adding the ongoing practice of comprehension activities and math and science, they can feel as confident as ever when that new year begins and learning continues.
