I don’t know about you, but I have no idea where the school year has gone. With both of us working, our schedules don’t change significantly in the summer months. However, the activities and focus at home definitely changes! I was so excited to receive the summer bridge activity book for Lily. She’s a smart little cookie, so I debated requesting one year up, but the book we received looks like it will be just perfect for my TAG (talented and gifted) program participant. Can I just say how proud I am of that little bunny of mine for getting into the program? Go Lily!
Carson Dellosa is a wonderful resource for all sorts of learning products. The recently surveyed over 500 parents and 78% said they have heard of “summer learning loss,” the “summer slide,” or the “summerslump.” 64% of parents are concerned about summer learning loss. 63% agree it’s a “real problem.” 93% of parents agree their children would “definitely benefit from learning over the summer.” However, only 27% of parents surveyed actually feel “well informed” on the topic. Further, a full 40% said schools are not doing enough to inform families about summer learning loss. Uh-oh! This gives you the perfect opportunity to be a resource to parents on the issue of summer-learning loss.
When it comes to preventing summer learning loss, their #1 best-selling Summer Bridge Activities® workbooks are a great option for parents who want to keep their kids engaged in learning all summer without the dreaded “nag factor.” Each book:
1. Keeps brains sharp and prepares kids for next year with focused skill review that takes just 15 minutes a day!
2. Bridges math, language arts, social studies, science, and character education from one grade to the next.
3. Includes outdoor activities, science experiments, and more!
4. Contains recommended reading lists.
I am very excited about having Lily go through this workbook this summer. It looks engaging and entertaining. I like the fact that it has a completion certificate at the end as well as stickers to use for daily accomplishments. I really like the Phonics/Reading Comprehension sections where your child will read a short bit, then answer questions.
