The loss of skiflls that beginning and emergent readers lose during vacations and holidays can be significant. Often, teachers are slowed down in their curriculum when they have to take steps back after a long break. It's a good idea to assign a fun phonics or reading activity during this break to help keep students on top of their game. Making a collage with words found in magazines, drawing a picture about a book they read over vacation and other simple assignments help your students retain the skills you taught them in school.
