Make Summer time a Smarter Time with Kumon
For children across the nation, the word “summer” evokes a carefree feeling. As the school bells dismiss for summer, they are eager to trade their backpacks for flip flops! Education experts, however, want parents to know that the summer break has historically caused a “summer slide” with academics! Ongoing research indicates that most students can lose up to two months of critical math and reading skills, which leads to educators spending at least three weeks re-teaching lessons when the school year begins.
With a little ingenuity and planning,parents can help prevent their children from spiraling down the“summer slide” while still creating a fun and memorable summer.Take advantage of the summer months by exploring new hobbies and building upon skills learned during the school year with these simple tips:
Encourage reading everyday whether at home, by the pool or at the local library.
Make family vacations impactful. Let your child help plan a trip by researching destinations where you can visit local attractions like museums,educational city tours, zoos, national parks or aquariums.
Spark creativity. Encourage your child to tap into their imagination by having them write a creative story or keep a journal on all their summer adventures.This is a fun way to strengthen motor skills and build critical writing skills.
Family game nights can be a great time to put problem solving skills to the test with fun games and puzzles like Scrabble, Sudoku, and word searches.
A night under the stars. Plan a family camp out in the backyard to stargaze. This is a fun way to learn the names of the constellations, which may even spark an interest in space exploration and Greek mythology.
Baseball games are filled with numbers. Catch a game at the ball park and have your child track player statistics, count stolen bases, record pitch count, and score the game. All MLB ballparks have scorecards to distribute – a fun and easy way to use math skills at the game.
Cook with your children.Whipping up a delicious recipe can be a fun way to incorporate math, reading, and following directions.
