Kids love summer vacations. So why don’t they do it, anyway? Schools will come in the summer, there are no science shows, no textbooks, storytelling, or math classes. So instead, it’s time to relax and have all the fun of summer promises.
However, we should keep our children busy so that they do not experience a decline in intelligence during last year’s school year. Another way to get your children ready for the next school year and not be left behind by their spouses for the holidays is to encourage them to get a summer study list or to enroll in a summer study program.
Why study in the summer?
• Builds a community between children
The summer learning program brings children of the same level, building community bonds, exchange of ideas, and healthy communication.
• Develops and maintains reading skills
This is undoubtedly the main reason for studying in the summer. It is a sure way to ensure that your children develop only their reading skills and their love and enthusiasm for learning.
• Access to resources
Summer reading programs allow you to access a wide variety of books. This makes it easier for your children to settle down comfortably in one form while exploring other types of books.
I was lucky enough to find the Nerd Alert blog, which has reviews of excellent books written by Phoebe, Jenny’s middle school daughter, and Andy of Dinner a Love Story. A great blog — options are not expected, it offers age recommendations and an adequate sense of story that you can get if it goes your child’s way.
I order three recommended books right now to help my children hone their reading skills even while on vacation.
It should too.
