Write a short story of your own. Read it aloud with a family member before bed tonight!

School may be out for the summer, but that doesn't mean you can't still learn. Reading a book before bedtime is a great way to wind down and practice your reading skills. The best part is that you can pick any book you're interested in! You can even ask a family member to read with you. 

RECHARGE with a book. Pick out three or four books you want to read this summer. Then, set a goal to read every night before bed.

Today is the summer solstice! It happens around this day every year and represents the longest day of sunlight. 

Even though the sun stays up longer, it's important to maintain your regular sleep schedule. Make sure that the sun doesn't keep you up when it's time for bed. Close your blinds to make your room as dark as possible. This helps your body realize it's time to wind down and fall asleep. 

Summer Solstice
RECHARGE today by spending time outside soaking up the warm summer sunshine.
