Reading with your children is a wonderful way to bond and even learn about science! Try out stories that relate to different living things that you can explore with your child to help make connections. When you read books about what your child will be exploring, you begin to build background knowledge of what he or she already knows and what other questions can be explored.
The school year is coming to a close! You are probably focused on your upcoming day of relaxation, or perhaps transitioning into your summer job. With the pressure of the daily grind off your shoulders — while a short, and let's be honest, precious time — summer is a great time to just relax and decompress from the school year.
