BOUNTIFUL - Even when school is out, whether for the weekend or for a holiday break such as the one coming up for Presidents’ Day, students can continue to learn, according to information provided by Utah Connections Academy.
The free online public school for students in kindergarten through 12th grade suggested students can keep academically stimulated by writing letters, doing science experiments in a kitchen laboratory, reading, producing their own theater or more.
Writing personalized notes can promote social skills, according to a release from UCA. They also suggest children talk with older relatives about their stories as a way to learn to research.
Parents who read, curled up in front of a fireplace, are showing children the benefits of reading.
Creating costumes, scripts, sets, writing programs and selling tickets for a children’s theater production are other ways to teach skills from math to creativity to kids at home.
