Can you believe it? We are already talking about things you can do to help your child avoid summer learning loss also known as the “summer slide.” To help you get a jumpstart on your summer learning plans I wanted to share a few ideas to help kids avoid learning loss over the summer.
Here are a few ways you can help your kids avoid summer learning loss, often referred to as “summer slide”.
Consider summer school
I know, nobody wants to think about summer school, but it is something to consider if your child didn’t do as well as they should have during the school year. The last thing you want is for them to lose any bit of learning they did during the school year. They could risk falling even further behind.
Schedule reading time daily
Each day for 30 minutes has the kids read a book they picked out themselves from the library. They should be able to find something that interests them at your local library. Plus it’s a great activity to do with them.
Make them start paying
Money is a great way to keep the kids learning a little math without them knowing it. You can also have them earn money by helping you out around the house. Math is a skill that is easy to lose over the summer, so anything and everything helps.
Don’t forget to cook and bake with your children. This is an excellent way to get those math, reading and science skills going. Plus, when it’s all said and done it sure will taste yummy!
I used to want to go to summer camp as a child, but my parents couldn’t afford to send us. I can’t afford to send my kids every year either, so I do understand, but if you are able to send them to summer camp, it’s a perfect place for them to have fun during the summer months and keep their body and mind busy.
Each summer teachers and parents are looking for diverse ways they can help prevent their children from falling into the “summer slide” and losing about two months of grade-level equivalency in math and so many lose some of their reading achievement over the summer. I’m excited to tell you that Brain Quest joins us in the fight against the “Summer Slide” with workbooks targeting each summer between kindergarten and 6th grade. These workbooks are a new and useful tool for teacher, parents, homeschoolers, and tutors.

This could be math problems, hands-on science, etc. They do this to help encourage children to move around in the book and follow whatever makes them curious.
