Summer break is quickly approaching, and the kids are all too happy to count down the days. And while the next 3 months are full of so many possibilities, I also want to make sure my kids are ready for their next school year. That’s why we’re spending just 15 minutes of our days learning during summer break with the teacher-recommended, award-winning Summer Bridge Activities series from Carson-Dellosa Publishing.
The summer slide, it’s a real thing and not as fun as it sounds. To support parents’ and educators’ quests to eliminate that slide and keep kids learning during summer break, the Carson-Dellosa Summer Activities workbooks helps prevent summer learning loss in just 15 minutes a day. Each grade-specific book in the series is designed to help students review the essential skills of their current grade level and to prepare them for the next.
Abby will be graduating from the 2nd grade, onto the 3rd, and we received a workbook for her grade level. She’s always been my little student, happily eager to complete whatever homework is in front of her, and so this workbook was like Christmas to her.
With the sheets in the workbook easily broken up into a front and backside per day, she dived right in and is already a number of days ahead before summer break has even started. There’s also sheets of flashcards for further studying and a Certificate of Completion at the end of the book.
Along with the Carson-Dellosa Summer Activities workbooks, here are a few other ways to make sure kids keep learning during summer break while also having a good time this summer:
Go on an adventure! Summer is a great time to explore the world outside, and there’s always so much to see. From learning about the ecosystem of the ocean if you happen to take a trip to the beach, to digging for worms in your backyard. There’s a learning opportunity everywhere you step!
Grow a garden. Not only is it a learning experience, but you get some yummy fresh produce, too. Kids will learn about the different kinds of fruits and veggies, how they’re good for our body, and even how growing a garden is good for the environment.
Give back to the birds. We recently made a bird feeder out of a simple plastic bottle, and it’s amazing to witness all the birds it attracts. Set up an afternoon of bird watching, where you study and learn about all the different birds you see.
Make it fun! Whatever you do, from workbooks to digging in the dirt, make it fun! Kids love to learn when it doesn’t feel like a chore, even during the summer.
