Mine did :(
Only I told the school that I will be working with them at home one on one. I want them to have a good summer they are already bummed out of school for now. I know I should send them but I want them to focus on what is being said or done. I mean only us mommies know our kids better right?
Now I really don't know where to begin...I have an idea but can't get on the ball. They are just having so much fun. Does anyone have some kind of schedule and time to do school work during the summer. thank you so much ladies for listening.

I agree with the other anon.
If you don't want to send them why not get some workbooks from Wal-mart or a local store that sells teacher supplies but is open for anyone?

Laura, how do you know the school has done her kids a disservice?
Some kids need more time and exposure to master skills. That's why we have summer school. Every summer school school program I've ever taught has been engaging, fun, and highly successful. It would be great if mom was stepping in and taking a new approach, but she admits she's not. She wrote this post because she's not helping her kids and wants to know how to start.

To the OP, I would start at the public library. If your kids are reading every day that's the #1 thing you can do to help them. Let them pick out books they can read on their own and harder ones for you read with them. Check out story time and any other activities they have available. If you have your kids read to you, to themselves, and listen to you read every day it will a huge help to them in the fall.
