Summer Learning Activities - It Is a Keeper

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carson-Dellosa. I reviewed the free content on their website  to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Just because school’s out for summer (are you singing the Alice Cooper song yet?), it doesn’t mean learning has to stop.

I love to reinforce what my son has learned through the school year by encouraging him to keep learning while he’s on summer break.  After all, he worked so hard during the school year and I don’t want those good habits to fall to the wayside.

While having fun and enjoying the extended break is top priority, I want to make sure that when September rolls around, he’s ready to tackle another new school year.

I found this great website, Carson-Dellosa Summer Learning Activities, that helps children (from toddlers to high school aged) stay on top of their studies and prevent summer learning loss.

By spending only 15 minutes a day, my son can reinforce what he learned during the prior school year and make sure he’s prepared and self-assured for the upcoming school year.  

Summer Learning Activities - It Is a KeeperA survey conducted by Carson-Dellosa indicatesthat 84% of teachers say students forget or “lose” some skills, knowledge or grade-level equivalency during the summer.

You can sign up for free and fun educational games, sample books, printable worksheets, and activities on the Carson-Dellosa Summer Learning Activities website.

The games and activities are fun and educational, which makes it easier to keep your kids learning during the summer break.

My son loves all of the science activities.  I love how he’s so inquisitive and fascinated by anything science related.

The Carson-Dellosa Summer Learning Activities website has hundreds of work sheets, resource guides, certificates and more, including Common Core resources!

To encourage my son to stay motivated during the summer, I use fun printable coupons to reward him for meeting his learning goals.

Getting Started Tips and Tricks

1.  Plan for learning. I use this fun schedule to make sure we have an organized summer.

2.  Do your homework.  Before the school year ends, review your child’s report card and talk to your child’s teacher to determine which areas need the more reinforcement.

3.  Start early.  Get the work done early so you can move on to other activities.

4. Emphasize your child’s skills.  Build in learning activities that capitalize on their interests and talents – like a love of nature or building with LEGOs.
