Summer is fast-approaching and the excitement is brewing for Summer Learning Day (SLD) 2015 on Friday, June 19th! Whether you are aiming to expand upon your awesome event or pledge from last year, or gearing up to participate in SLD for the first time, the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is here with great ideas and strategies to support your planning and make your SLD 2015 event(s) engaging, fun and effective.
- Get Healthy and Get Smart to learn how your community can play an important role in addressing the need for healthy meals and physical activities this summer. Parents can get in on the action by being active with their child and by setting aside specific reading time.
- Follow the Numbers to learn how to share and use data to stem summer learning loss in your community this summer.
- Learn how to Make Every Word Count to help children continue reading and learning over the summer months.
- Spread the Word through community-wide messaging on the importance of summer learning and to support reading over the summer months.
