What Did You Do This Past Summer?
Mason Crest Elementary School has been holding watch parties during which teachers read a book every Tuesday evening on Facebook these past few weeks.
The sign at the entrance of the school reminds students to have a good summer and read! read! read! The previous post on this blog, "Them That Has, Gets", talks about the summer learning loss that happens over the break. It is truly commendable that teachers at Mason Crest are keeping in touch with their pupils through social media. A recent post on Facebook from Sergio Jimenez opens our eyes to something that we should also consider when pupils return to school after the summer break: "Some kids are simply glad that summer is over."
