Prevent Summer Slide: 3 Ideas to Help Kids Learn Right Now!

Worried about summer slide? Here are three tips to help!

  1. Get workbooks designed for summer - organized assignments that are grade-transition on target! Check with your local bookstore or Amazon/Barnes & Noble online. We're using the "Summer Bridge" series and love it. 
  2. All that driving around to camp? Use it to boost math skills with counting, adding and subtraction songs! A great resource is TheKiboomers.com
  3. We're writing in a journal every night, and ending every entry with "I feel _____." Happy? Tired? It's a great way to learn about emotions!

Summer is a time for fun, but be sure to include some learning as well!
