Summer and slides go together like peanut butter and jelly. Slides at the Water Park. Slip’n Slides in the backyard. The trusty ol’ slide at the local park. Kids love slides!
But did you know there’s a different kind of slide that your kids need to avoid?
It’s known as the Summer Slide and it refers to kids losing academic skills and knowledge over the summer break when they are out of school and not engaged in educational activities. I just heard about this for this time recently as my 5 year old's kindergarten class was winding down and it makes sense. I had just never had to consider it!
