School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
In the height of summer, how do you prepare for a rain storm when the weather is sweltering? To help answer this question we all ask ourselves, we dug around retailers from Amazon to Anthropologie to find items like lightweight ponchos for kids, umbrellas that won't flip inside out, rainproof diaper bags and more. Use this list to keep your family dry, cool and prepared when it's raining cats and dogs.

Why had they come back a second time to this place,when they had just escaped the night before? Was it the lure of the locked door...? Was it just being too stubborn, knowing all along that they shouldn’t have come back to this place? Time seemed to have no meaning now as the two of them sat huddled together in their prison. Surely they would perish as the wind and rain tried with all of its fury to enter the walls of their hidden room—walls that would surely collapse, burying them forever with their secret, a secret known only by them and the keeper of the key. read more

Problem Solving Skills Within each concept section, the problems are grouped into three difficulty levels: Easy Medium Hard The critical thinking advices, answers, and detailed explanations are located to the right of the problems. Students can refer to the answers easily but can also cover the page if they want to attempt the problem on their own 1500+ Practice Problems and 10 Mock Tests In addition to a thorough overview of materials, this book provides over 1500 practice problems for you to reinforce your understanding of the material and pinpoint the weak areas you need to improve on.

More SAT Practice Questions Just Like the Real Test Several new SAT Math exams have been administered since March 2016, and we now have a clearer picture of what the exam will look like. Some changes we made for the 2018 edition workbook include reducing the number of geometry problems and increasing the number of algebra problems, including a more balanced variety of difficulty in the problems and increasing the number of practical problem-solving questions. We published this 2018 edition to more adequately reflect what students will see on the actual test.
