With the end of the school year on the horizon, families are looking forward to some fun in the sun. But that notorious villain, Summer Learning Loss, is waiting in the wings—poised to sweep in and rob children of up to 34% of their previous year’s academic gains in just one summer.*

Never fear! Tune in to this edWebinar to learn research-based ways you can help families become unstoppable heroes in their children’s summertime learning. We share:

  • Action-packed strategies and creative skill-building activities that can be woven into daily routines
  • Powerful academic and social-emotional skills to maximize back-to-school success
  • Resources to give families before the school year ends

Learning Loss, begone! Gear up to help families and children join forces for a blockbuster summer of learning! This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-8 teachers, school and district leaders, and school counselors.
