Summer slide can undo some of the good work you and the children accomplish over the school year. If you keep regular communication with your families, you can help boost retention and encourage Mass attendance over the summer months. These resources from Pflaum are free and easy to share with your families:
Scripture Younger children can read or listen to the Sunday readings before going to Mass. They are available from the Children Celebrate! Liturgy of the Word with Children program. There are also links to the daily Lectionary for Mass in both Spanish and English.
Song Many of the songs the children heard over the school year have become very familiar. Share the download page with your families. Children can listen to free snippets of the songs, or families can download favorite tracks or the entire CD. Lyrics are also available.
