Did you know that kids could lose up to 2 1/2 months of learning throughout the summer? This can make for a rough start to the school year for kids, parents and teachers but it is fully preventable with just a little learning each day. As a former teacher, I know JUST how important it is for parents to work with their child over the summer, and could always tell which of my students had been working on academic skills over the summer (and which had just been watching tv!) I hear all the time that “doing school” with our kids is something that only teachers know how to do, and that for any other parent, the task is just too daunting….NOT SO! Carson-Dellosa, one of my all-time favorite education companies, is offering a summer learning prize pack to one of my very lucky readers, and let me tell you….Carson-Dellosa makes working with your child SO easy!! (And your child will LOVE not only the time with you, but will love feeling successful and having fun while learning!!)
According to a study by Johns Hopkins University, by ninth grade, then lack of summer learning can be blamed for roughly two-thirds of the achievement gap. Help prevent your child from falling between the cracks and check out some of the fun Summer Bridge Activities from Carson-Dellosa! You can check out their full line HERE! As a teacher, I used TONS of Carson-Dellosa products, and have purchased the Summer Bridge products for my own children. I was thrilled to pieces when asked to receive and review a summer learning pack for my daughter Hannah, to help bridge her learning from kindergarten to first grade over the summer. Hannah loves school and loves to stay busy! Working through the Summer Bridge workbook this summer will be perfect for her!
Hannah got right to work in her Summer Bridge Workbook! The directions were in language she could read and understand, and the workbook has a good mix of easy, just right, and challenging activities. Hannah will get to work on literacy, math, critical thinking, and so much more over the summer, ensuring that she will be ready for first grade in September! We love the Summer Bridge Activity Cards (and at $8.95 you will too!), and have already placed one in Hannah’s reading box on her bed, and one in my purse to pull out when stuck waiting for a doctor, in the shopping cart, etc! Why not keep your child busy doing something educational and fun this summer while you run your errands?! We plan on using the Sea Life Incentive Charts in conjunction with summer chores…super cute and tangible way to keep kids motivated and working towards a goal!
Don’t let your child fall behind! Keep them learning all summer long with Carson-Dellosa!!
