Over the summer of 2017, Red Lion students will complete summer reading and purchase required supplies. In addition to reading, we encourage students to write and practice their math facts/skills. Supply and summer reading requirements are noted below.
SUPPLIES - 2017
SUMMER READING - 2017
Elementary parents, please be purposeful with the use of technology for learning. There are many great programs and apps available for children. Some games automatically add points or give possible solutions. These features can sometimes be turned off under the game settings to increase skill attainment. Also, ensure your children are writing with actual pens and pencils some of the time. Believe it or not, holding a pencil can be foreign to students after a summer of swimming pools and touch screens. A handwritten journal is a nice option and is a summer keepsake as well. As a further benefit, journals help students transfer thoughts into written form. The more students write the easier it will be for them when school begins. If using flash cards for math facts, writing the answers in addition to providing oral answers will increase their speed for drills and assessments during the school year. Every moment counts. Save a few moments for academics this summer!
