Tips To Avoid the Summer Learning Slide
1. Make Summer Learning Fun
A day trip to the zoo, a walk in the park, or sitting by a pool can all become learning moments during a child's summer. Incorporate things like counting steps, timing activities, or learning about wildlife to keep children's brain active and improve things like memory and recall.
2. Get into A Routine
The best way to ensure you and your child commit to summer learning is to make a routine and stick to it. If there is a time every day that you know you will be with your child, use that time to incorporate learning.
Make a list of books for your child to read over the summer. Ensure they are the appropriate reading level and have your child keep a journal of words that are new to them.
Math can be one of the easiest subjects for children to slide back in during the summer. Download or buy math workbooks and have your child complete a page each week.
5. The Right Kind of Screen Time
There is no way to avoid it, so make the most of it! Download educational apps on your child's device and make sure they are getting the most out of their screen time
