ABSTRACT
The article presents tips to keep literacy learning going all summer long. Learning to read is a long process, and children need regular practice and nurturing to become proficient. While the summer months are packed with vacations, play, and camp, it's important to build reading and literacy activities into a child's day. Memory games can help a child focus on details, categorize, and think more systematically--all important in the development of early literacy. Kids love noticing signs, so they can be encouraged to look at license plates, billboards, street signs. Listening to spoken stories helps children form vivid images of events in their minds.
