The HDSB Summer Learning Packages have been updated and are ready for you to share virtually with your school community!
The intent of these materials is to reinforce the importance of home-school partnerships and further engage families in supporting their child's learning at home. The suggestions provided will help support student reading achievement, additional language and math skills, motivation, and engagement throughout the summer.
The HDSB Summer Learning Packages 2022 (one for students leaving Kindergarten, one for students leaving Grade 1, and one for students leaving Grade 2), include:
July and August calendars of fun activities to do with children
additional activities and games
suggestions for “Before, During and After Reading”
reference pages including word lists, alphabet linking charts, game directions
Schools might share the packages with specific families by email, or make the packages available on the school’s website (sharing settings are already set to “anyone on the internet”). The Summer Learning Packages are being shared digitally as they have several links to online resources and activities. The packages have also been created using Google Docs so families can easily translate them as needed.
