Staying close to home this summer? Why not plan a staycation? You can make the most out of listening and language right where you are! Read how you can turn your plan into a LSL learning opportunity and download some of our suggested staycation ideas for your family.
Summer brings a whole new world of language for our LSL learners. You don’t even need to travel to make the most out of summer learning because you have everything you need right at home! If you’re staying close to home this summer remember that your home and community offer endless opportunities to experience listening and language in both familiar and expanded ways. Planning, experiencing and reflecting on a staycation can be a fun and relaxing way to take advantage of everything your home and community has to offer.
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about how to turn your summer staycation adventures into LSL learning experiences!
The zoo is a great place to connect the animals in your child’s books with the experience of hearing, seeing and smelling them up close.
Planning, planting and growing a garden can be a great way to keep the listening and language going all summer long. Your garden can be in a pot, a garden bed or occupy much of your yard.
