Keeping Kids Learning & Having Fun This Summer

June 27, 2013


According to the research, all kids experience learning losses (on average 2 months in math) when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.  This is referred to as the “summer slide”.   So, it’s important to make sure children are involved in learning and educational activities during the summer, so they don’t lose the skills they worked so hard to achieve.

To motivate your son or daughter to engage in reading, writing, or math activities and practice academic skills over the summer, it has to be fun..  Fortunately, there are lots of ways (entertaining and challenging educational games, activities, projects) to prevent summer learning loss and strengthen academic skills.

Today I had the pleasure of being the guest presenter of a webinar on “Fun Ways to Boost Your ADHD Child’s Academic Skills This Summer” for ADDitude magazine.  I will be writing a number of blogs during the next two months on this topic – sharing lots of ideas and resources for doing so.
