We know how important it is for young learners to practice over the summer to maintain and build their skills. Here, you’ll find a variety of summer learning activities and resources for your child by division level, as well as information on community events for the whole family and other ways to stay connected to the WES community this summer.
Here are carefully curated resources, in literacy, math, social studies, science, and foreign language, to help your child continue to grow and have fun this summer.
This was a great year of learning for all of us! Through our speaker series, we had the chance to understand more about neurodiversity, race, gender, and ways to navigate challenging conversations with our children. As our Elementary and Middle School students will be exploring identity as part of their summer reading, we also want to keep this learning going for parents throughout the summer! So, the Parent Diversity Committee invites all WES families to continue learning and growing in a few different ways:
Blokus is an abstract strategy board game, and we have adapted this popular game into a summer reading tool. We invite all Elementary students to join us! You can find the Blokus game card here, and here is a list of reading suggestions. Questions? Contact Mr. Pané at email@example.com. Happy Reading, Dragons!
As we mentioned earlier, summer reading is critical to helping students retain the skills they have developed over the school year. Click on each grade or division level to learn about required reading and activities, as well as review a supplemental reading list. Reading lists are compiled according to which grade the student will enter in the fall.
Also, check out our Virtual Book Fair, where you can purchase our recommended summer reading titles to add to your permanent collection.
Ms. Kellerman and Ms. Girgis have assembled math packets to help our students practice their skills over the summer. The packets should be completed by the start of the school year. There is a work packet and an answer key (so students can self-check) for each math class.
