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

Continue their favorite lessons from the school year

My mother is a kindergarten teacher. This year, some of her kids got really interested in medieval times. They created their own armor so they could be knights. They turned the “house area” into a castle, complete with working draw bridge. The kids found something that was interesting and the teachers build lesson plans around it. That’s what teachers are good at.

So why not capitalize on the teacher’s hard work. Figure out the project from the year that most excited your little one and find ways to expand on it or continue the lesson. Help your kids research, build and explore. The hardest part can be finding something that sparks your kid’s imagination. If the teacher has already done that for you, it’s silly not use that to your advantage.
