Tips for Summer Learning
I can hardly believe that summer is almost here! I love summer, but I also appreciate all of the time my child spent in class this year learning. It’s amazing to me how far he’s come and how much he’s learned. He’s leaving Kindergarten and will be starting 1st grade in September so I want to make sure he continues to learn throughout the Summer. Here are some Tips for summer learning to keep your little ones intrigued.
Spend time reading to your child- One of the best ways you can keep learning going this summer is to actually read to your child. Even if your child can read, it’s still awesome to spend time reading to them. Pick out a few good books from the library each week and enjoy reading together. Kids that are read to learn to appreciate reading! Not to mention, it helps them to keep learning!
Spend time reviewing with your child- Another way you can actually spend time learning with your child is by reviewing what they learned this summer. I’ve kept papers from the past school year and went back over some of the concepts with my child. It’s really cool to see what they learned at the start of the year and at the end of the year. It’s so important to go over that information with them when possible!
Set aside time to review with them- I think one of the hardest parts of the summer is that everything is SO busy! Make sure you take the time to review concepts with your child this summer. You don’t have to spend a TON of time doing it, but maybe 30 minutes each day!
Use the Summer Bridge Activities series – Something that we have begun working on this summer is the Summer Bridge Activities series. This is an awesome activity series that helps prevent summer learning loss that we all dread in our kids. I love that my kid can spend 15 minutes a day doing these activities and he not only avoids losing knowledge, but he also gains some for the next school year. Although summer learning loss is real, but it is also preventable. To help your child and mine avoid learning loss- Carson-Dellosa Publishing has 10 fun ways to easily and effectively bridge the summer learning gap.
