With summer officially beginning mid-day tomorrow, the teacher in me is just as excited as my kids but as a parent, I know how important it is for them to maintain their skills in order to prevent the famed summer slide. Making learning fun can be a challenge between camp, pool trips, and playdates but there are fun ways you can spend a mere 10-15 minutes each day to ensure that your child will be ready for school again come fall.
In this week’s post on The LeapFrog Community I wrote about Promoting Summer Learning for Kids with Different Learning Styles and included a brief review of the Summer Bridge Activities Series ($14.95 retail or $10-12 each from Amazon) designed for preK- 8th graders.
This series is perfect for paper and pencil learners who like show what they know on a worksheet. I like the format of Summer Bridge because the books are grade level specific and review content while previewing new reading, math, science, social studies, and geography curriculum that will be taught in the next grade level. Summer Bridge makes review for any age short and sweet- we found that it only takes 10-15 minutes a day to complete the required page a day!
If you’d like to enter to win a set of 2 Summer Bridge Activities books to use with you children this summer, read my Promoting Summer Learning for Kids with Different Learning Styles post on The LeapFrog Community and come back here to leave a comment telling me what kind of learner you think your child is.
Good luck and happy summer!
