When did August hit? Summertime might almost be over, but there is still time to get some mental gears turning to prevent summer regression. Beyond reading, your child needs to work on their math, writing, science, and social studies. Get some work in and be ready for the school year with Summer Bridge Activities from Carson-Dellosa Publishing. According to the National Summer Learning Association, most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency over the summer months. You can be your child’s best advocate and get them back into the learning, and help stop regression.
Carson-Dellosa Publishing offers workbooks for toddlers through high schools. You can get grade level books or focus books beyond the basic classrooms learning in subjects such as Christian learning, fiction, foreign language and ESL, puzzles and games, test preparation and more.
These curriculum books are also excellent sources for not only summer breaks but during school year extended breaks or to help you further your child’s learning at home without the use of their boring, viewed-it-over-and-over-again school textbooks. Our family has a month long vacation planned during the school year and this book will help me keep my Pre-K student up on grade appropriate learning.
My son and I have done many of the pages from his Pre-K/Kindergarten practice book. He loves completing the tasks and earning his sticker for completing a page. He skips around and choses things he’s interested in like mazes and coloring robots (which is pre-mathematics as it’s a geometry lesson – tricked him into learning!). Actually my son loves learning and fondly calls this book his “drills”. He ASKS ME to do pages while is little brother is in naptime … what a problem to have! Working in his book also gives my son experience using pens and pencils. But when we don’t have a writing utensil, my son and I can keep up with his curriculum using Carson-Dellosa Publishing’s activity cards (offered for grades Pre-K through 5th), so you can get some learning-on-the-go into your schedule. The Carson-Dellosa activity cards are connected together by a plastic screw at the base and make a great learning tooling in an airport terminal, in the car, or at the doctor’s office. My son loves the small tasks, funny jokes, and cool facts.
It’s not too late to get what your child really needs for back to school. Get their school supplies and with Carson-Dellosa boost their brains! Get FREE SHIPPING on any $15+ online order using promotion code EVG121 between August 12-29, 2011 at checkout.
