Welcome to Issue #7 of our Summer of Learning newsletter! Every week we will be sharing a variety of activities, resources, and tips to keep your kids learning and entertained until the new school year. 

This week, we're focusing on making vocab practice fun and active! Check out the rules for the Fly Swatter game, an activity that will get your kids on their feet and learning new letters and words. Keep on reading for more learning resources, free events in the Denver metro area, and at-home learning activities.


Check out this resource: The Flyswatter Game 

Learning new words or letters doesn’t have to be tedious! Get your kids off the couch and moving with the Flyswatter Game. When you combine vocabulary practice with a little competition and fast-paced play, your kids will be excited to keep learning!
