The mission of KLRN is to open a world of lifelong learning through trustworthy and enriching programs on-air, online and in our community.
Dear Families,

Summer learning loss is very real, but it’s also very avoidable. Simple suggestions for how to prevent summer learning loss is to make sure that your child is able to keep their skills sharp while also enjoying their hard-earned vacation!
 
Summer slide, or summer learning loss, describes the deterioration of academic skills during the summer months when school is not in session. This often results in a rocky transition back into the classroom and difficulty gaining momentum at the beginning of the new school year. Studies have shown that summer slide is a real phenomenon that affects students more significantly the higher their grade level.
 
Fortunately, there are steps you can take throughout the summer to mitigate the effects of summer slide. Going to the library with your child, encouraging them to read every day, participating in learning games with your child outside and inside, and volunteering with your child are some strategies to help your child keep their skills sharp while still allowing them to enjoy their vacation.
 
PBS learning activities are a perfect way to make sure your child doesn’t lose any of their hard-earned skills during the summer.
 
 You can find additional resources at pbs.org/parents, a trusted PBS source.
 
Please reach out to us any time at education@klrn.org.
 
With appreciation,

Healthy Kids Project

KLRN’s Healthy Kids Project supports healthy lifestyles by influencing eating decisions and physical activities.
Through project resources, the audience is introduced to songs, live action movement, animation, and a cast of “perfectly imperfect” characters to deliver key messaging that contrasts healthy choices and attitudes with unhealthy behaviors. Lessons include activities for children ages 0-9 and all school age lessons are aligned to the TEKS.
