Summer time is known as brain drain time for many kids, but not in our house! We've been playing with lots of play-doh (yes, even the 14 year old - it's fun!), and working on lapbooks together. Grace is working on writing her first book right now, titled Foodland. Something about food coming to life? I'm thinking Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs-ish.
Some of our favorite summer learning resources include:
-- lapbooks: let the kids pick the topic, and dive in!
-- book report alternatives: because nobody wants to write book reports all summer, but the kids still need to read.
-- play-doh, salt, clay: because playing with this stuff is fun.
-- building blocks: you're never too old to build towers!
What are some other ways to make summer learning stick? With stickers, of course!
Get your kiddos interactively learning timely subjects this summer. I like these sets because they're fun, washable, and won't chip my paint... we did just paint our entire house!
