This summer the BeYOUtiful Brown Girl Project will be hosting a Summer Challenge!
The SUMMER CHALLENGE is a made up of a collection of fun, creative and thought provoking mini- activities that can be done throughout the summer. We are hosting a summer challenge because several studies show that children who do not read over the summer tend to regress and lose important skills and strengths over the summer. Research also shows that reading at least 6 books over the summer, students can actually increase their reading level!
By participating in the SUMMER CHALLENGE, students on summer break can keep learning all summer long and beat the summer slide. The summer slide is the phrase used to describe the slide backwards that many children tend to make when not actively engaged in purposeful learning activities throughout the summer months. This includes reading independently for a minimum of 20 minutes everyday.
Participating in the SUMMER CHALLENGE is EASY! Just follow us on instagram and sign up for our newsletter to see our weekly challenges! All activities can be downloaded for free! Everything will be made available for download on our FREE DOWNLOADS page.
