Your child has worked so hard to meet the first grade standards. Taking the entire summer off from school work can result in the “summer slide”. To avoid that consider using these resources.

French listening

  • Use Netflix or another streaming service to watch shows in French.

Math – Integrating “Math talk” into every day is the best way to review Math. If you need to compute something do your calculations out loud so your child can observe you doing Math. As your child to participate in your “math problems”: I have 3 oranges and I need 7, can you get me how many more I need?

  • Review French numbers 0-120 – students need to be very comfortable with their numbers 0-120 at the beginning of second grade. Please include as much French counting in to your days as possible.
