4th of July Parade
Thank you to all the Travell families†who designed and†created another fabulous float for†Ridgewood's 4th of July Parade. Over 100 children, parents, and even the Travell Tiger†marched in this year's parade.†Our float won three awards: † Best Personnel and Costumes, Best Workmanship, and Best Portrayal of Parade Theme. Congratulations to all!
KEEP READING
Children should continue to read throughout the summer months to maintain their reading levels.If they donít read over the summer, their learning stalls or regresses (Cooper, Borman, & Fairchild, 2010). Reading even six books over the summer can maintain a reading level. Reading more than ten books can not only maintain their skills but improve their reading. Reading is a wonderful way to stave off summer boredom and increase studentsí vocabulary acquisition, fluency, and background knowledge. Children should select their own books on topics they like, characters they love, or something they know about. Remember it's better to choose something that feels a little too easy rather than something that's too hard. If you need some good book suggestions, check out the summer reading list below. Happy reading!

Math Practice
"Mommy? Daddy? Read me a word problem," is probably not a request that many parents hear. Yet if a school child's parents replace a bedtime story with a math discussion even one night a week, the child's math skills may improve markedly compared with peers who listen to nonmathematical stories, a new study shows. The effect is sizable: Over the course of one 9-month school year,†students who do bedtime math gain on average the equivalent of a 3-month advantage over their peers, researchers report online today in†Science. The approach even works if the parents have math anxiety and generally shy away from discussing math with their children.
