Kids all across the country have now enjoyed weeks of summer -- and sneaking up behind those lazy days is the 'Summer Slide.' That's when kids have a loss of learning, mostly in reading and math. Research shows up to three months of learning can be lost.
Check out my segment on Home & Family TV and see some additional tips below.
Quick tips on reducing the Summer Slide:
-Explain the Summer Slide to kids
-Make a list of GOALS for the summer
-Make learning fun
-Recruit a "travel agent." Ask your kids to put a vacation plan together (maps/budget/critical thinking)
-Learn a new word each week
-Enter a writing contest
-Create a summer reading list and find fun math apps to practice math
