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!

ways to Make Summer Learning Stick

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!

6 Ways to Make Summer Learning Stick

Let's get started!

US Government

GOV

As we honor Memorial Day and look forward to 4th of July, now is a great time to learn about the US Government and honor our history. Your kiddos could also be learning about the presidential election process for the first time this year, and this is a useful primer for questions that may come up.

United States Geography

USA1

Summer is a time for family visits, road trips, vacations and staycations. I love this set because we can point out where we've been, where we're going, and where friends and relatives are visiting from – all while memorizing the US! It's also great little brain teaser for the entire family.

World Geography

This set is a great way to get your little ones thinking outside of the sandbox! I like doing themed weeks where we focus on a geographic region of the world, then explore the region's culture (and foods!). The world map is a great jumping off point for math, too, for example: How many miles away is France? What is the distance between our house and the Statue of Liberty?

Habitats

Summertime also means more time outdoors. These are a great supplement to any camping, swimming, and hiking your family will do this season. If you're at the pool, you can discuss the difference between fresh water and the ocean habitats, and why each are important to our ecosystem.

Solar System

SOLAR1

Whether your little ones light up at the sound of shooting stars or Star Wars, our solar system can capture their imaginations! I love this sticker set for summer because we have clear nights to experience what we learn, and then recap the next day. This can also be combined with outdoor and nighttime safety learning by using the sun and north star to orient cardinal directions.

  1. Amazing article! I agree with you. When it comes to summer learning, it is always better to go beyond the traditional coursework to explore some active-learning opportunities. There’s plenty of hands-on learning at your child’s fingertips. Thanks for sharing such a great article. I am looking for some more interesting articles from you in future.
