Question from Angil: Do you have suggestions for “summer school” to round out the missing lessons from 3rd grade – math, and reading (very slow reader and fluctuations in interest)?
Reply from Waldorf Teacher Diane Power: “Summer school” I always encouraged the parents to allow their child to play outdoors as much as possible, make things together, grow something with them, allow them to play and find ways for them to help around the house. Read to them Find a chapter book that speaks to their interests and allow them to be inspired. Create a nature journal together and add to it daily. Reading and Math will be woven into your days and Fall will be here before you know it. The student will have grown in capabilities and ready to move forward.
