COMMUNITY ARTICLE Tips to Stop the Summer Slide For anyone not involved in education the term summer slide might sound like something good maybe a new feature at the waterpark For educators the summer slide is that dreaded regression many students experience when they lose valuable skills over the summer As a parent there are some ways that we can support our kids and prevent them from going down the summer slide Reading Keeping kids reading is the best thing to help them stay on track for when they return to school in the fall Have older children read out loud to younger siblings and encourage all readers to read something every day Not sure how many books your child should be reading over the summer A good goal is six books at their current reading level That s roughly two books per month of summer vacation Math Skills It doesn t matter if it s family card night or a game that s specifically designed to enhance math skills any use of math over the summer will help keep those brain connections healthy so teachers don t have to dust off cobwebs when they return to class NOW OFFERING A DOCTOR SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM CSI 1 4 Page Vertical Lose 20 35lbs in 6 weeks with no drugs exercise injections pre packaged food or shakes More energy less pain less inflammation and less weight in 2023 We are here to support you Dr Jill 1 4 Page Vertical Call to schedule your no cost no obligation consultation today 788 Eastland Drive Ste B Twin Falls Idaho 208 734 3030 www drjillfamilychiro com 6 www southernidahokids com

sponsored by SMART MONEY Making Money This Summer Summer is a time for playing in the sun but also a great time to earn extra money Maybe you have your eyes on a new bike a video game or just want to buy some ice cream from the ice cream truck when it comes by We have a few ideas on how to safely earn some extra cash this summer Can I walk your dog in the evening for 3 a day Or put in whatever work you think you could do really well for a few dollars This could include pulling weeds mowing their lawn picking up dog poop cleaning a pool raking up leaves and more Cool Drinks on a Hot Summer Day Be sure to tell your parents which houses you are marketing to and when you will be back They can tell you which houses to avoid and which to visit to make the most of your time Selling lemonade or another cold drink to neighbors friends and people passing by is a summertime classic Many people enjoy supporting young business owners and getting a nice cold drink when it is hot outside In order to get attention and sell your drinks here are a few tips Use fresh water with plenty of ice Set up in a place with steady traffic but where people cane drive slowly like at the entrance to your neighborhood Sell the drink in a big cup for a reasonable price like a full red disposable cup for 50 cents Sell more than just drinks like cookies or Rice Krispies treats Be sure to tell your parents what you are doing and where you will be They can keep an eye on you and make sure you are being safe and smart while selling your cool drinks Doing Yard Work and Chores for Your Neighborhood The last thing many adults want to do after a hard day of work is head outside in the heat and pull weeds mow the lawn or walk their dog You can earn some extra cash by offering to do it for them As you go door to door have ideas of what services you will provide Don t go and ask if they have work you could do because they might not be able to think of any Instead say something like Hello I m trying to earn some extra money SUPER SAVERS Garage Sale Got some old toys comic books outfits or video games you don t need anymore Do your parents have a garage full of clutter they want to de junk Hold a garage sale to make some money and get rid of stuff you don t want around Clean everything up put a price on each item make signs to direct people to your garage sale and pick a weekend to start selling You could even combine this with a lemonade stand to make some extra money People will likely haggle to try and get your prices lower which is part of the experience Be willing to lower your price because whatever you don t sell you have to keep In many scenarios it s better to sell something for cheap and still get some money than nothing at all and your item goes back in the house to collect dust Keep Your Money Safe Now that you ve earned some money you need to keep it safe A piggy bank can work but why not earn some extra money with your cash If you open a Pioneer Super Star Youth Savings Account you earn interest every month Depending on how much money you have saved in the account you earn a little bit of money regularly which is better than sitting in your piggy bank Federally Insured by NCUA Membership required xxx Sponsor Page Horizontal At the end of a Rainbow is a healthy financial future for your child Federally Insured by NCUA Summer 2023 25
