When some students return from a vacation it may appear to teachers that they have forgotten what they’ve learned. MAP results may indicate drops in math, reading and language scores. This coffee session will offer activities, resources and strategies to use with students while on vacation that are fun and engaging. Please come and experience some of the activities. In a previous parent coffee morning presentation, we shared the following information. We hope that it will be useful as you're thinking about the upcoming vacation.

- Summer Learning at Home
- Celebrate Science
- Teacher Resources Inspired by Films
- Storyline Online
