5 Strategies To Keep Your Kids Learning Over The Summer – Without Worksheets

By  | 

Read, read, read

We know. I realize that we all know our kids need to read. But in the summer, it’s even more important than ever that kids have time every day to read or be read to. Our family is a tad traditionalist, so we like to do it before bedtime. But don’t be afraid to mix it up.

Head to the library so that they can pick out interesting and diverse books. Start a chapter book that you can pick up all summer long. Show them your summer novels. (They don’t know what Fifty Shades of Grey means.) Do whatever you can, but keep your kids reading.

If they need a little incentive, most schools and libraries have summer reading programs where your kids can earn prizes for hitting a certain number of books over the summer.
