Did you know that recent research shows that when students take a break from learning all summer, they’re not just missing new opportunities to learn, but could also be losing up to three months worth of knowledge gained in the school year prior? By keeping engaged throughout the summertime by doing things like trying new activities, learning new skills, learning outdoors, and reading, students are able to retain info, build knowledge, and prepare for success in their future academics and careers.
At Skooli, we understand the importance of continuing learning throughout the summer months, which is why we are wishing you a happy National Summer Learning Day.
About National Summer Learning Day
I’ll let the folks at NSLA (National Summer Learning Association) explain. Here’s the snippet from the their website:
“Summer Learning Day is an annual national advocacy day led by the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) to highlight the importance of keeping kids learning, safe and healthy every summer.”
Well-known advocate for education, First Lady Michelle Obama, delivered her own message for Summer Learning Day 2016:
Whether you’re getting involved at one of the 1000+ events happening across the United States today (resource fairs, science fairs, library and museum visits, social media events, and more) or keeping rolling with those online tutoring sessions, Skooli wishes all of our students, parents, tutors, and partners in education an amazing National Summer Learning Day.
