Support Your Your Students Students This This Summer Summer With With Support

READING & WRITING BOOST


This year, more than ever, Learning without Tears is supporting your students in and out of the classroom environment. We are helping to combat the summer slide and boost literacy skills by combining some of our favorite writing materials with beloved children’s books. At-home instructions and additional free resources are also included, encouraging students to read and write all summer long!

The decline in students’ abilities to read over the long summer break inhibits how effective teachers can be in the fall. Teachers have struggled with this rift for years—but it doesn’t have to be this way! Regular exposure to literacy enrichment and engaging students with quality resources can help build a bridge to student success in the fall.

…if families and educators encourage kids to stay engaged in learning throughout the summer, students may not only maintain, but improve their knowledge. Source: Psychology Today, July 6, 2020

Each student bundle includes our research-backed and grade-level appropriate materials. Building Writers:

Supplemental writing practice in one activity book. Offers structured practice to develop narrative, informative, and opinion writing skills.

Writing Journal:

Grade-level journals offer an organized tool for reading response and handwriting practice. Journal writing helps children process feelings, build writing skills, and communicate their ideas.
