Red SlideWhen learning stops during the summer, students suffer from what is referred to as the summer slide—a loss of ability and knowledge from the close of school in the spring to the reopening in the fall. 


Take advantage of the long summer days, and prevent summer learning loss with Thinkfinity's fun, interactive games and activities. In addition to online games and engaging summertime activities, you’ll find recommended reading lists as well as a discussion forum where parents and educators can interact.


For a review of the resources on ReadWriteThink, watch the new Engaging Students After  School and at Home video, and check out the calendar entries, lesson plans, and classroom activities below for  more classroom and summer ideas. Have a great week!
