As kids finish up with the school year, it is important that parents keep their kids’ minds working throughout the summer. This does not mean that they have to push their children into a schooling setting but it is important that parents make learning a part of the summer vacation. There are many ways that parents can continue to keep children interested and engaged in learning throughout the summer months.
First, reading books that the child is exciting about reading is a great way to keep a child engaged. Teaching a child to enjoy learning can be very beneficial. Take your child to the local public library, take out a library card and let him or her check out books each week. Talk with your child about the books that he or she is reading and read some of the books together.
Second, find a workbook that targets a skill that your child struggles with. Work with your child for a specific amount of time each day and make goals with your child. Discuss rewards for making it through portions of the workbook so your child can focus on the reward when they get frustrated. Shopping online for the right workbooks can be a great way to be able to read reviews and hear what other parents have to say about the book.
