Yes, school is out for the summer but that doesn't mean your child's learning needs to stop. According to the National Summer Learning Association, research spanning 100 years confirms that children experience learning losses in math and reading without continued opportunities for skill building over the summer. These losses have later life consequences, including high school curriculum placement, and likeliness to finish high school or attend college.
Leading U.S. educational publishing company, Carson-Dellosa Publishing LLC, has released Summer Bridge Activities™ 2010, the newly revised and redesigned edition of the best-selling summer workbook series. An award-winning resource for children and parents for over a decade, Summer Bridge Activities is designed for preschool through eighth grade to help children maintain the skills and knowledge they learned in the classroom during the previous school year and to prepare them for the next grade.
The only summer workbook series designed by teaching experts to give children grade-level activities that can be completed in just 15 minutes per day, Summer Bridge Activities provides children and parents a proven solution to the problem of summer learning loss with the most comprehensive curriculum on the market. By using Summer Bridge Activities daily throughout the summer, students can stay on track and enter their new grade prepared and confident.
The original, award-winning workbooks consist of daily activities in reading, writing, math, science and social studies for grades Pre-K through 8th. The series includes games, full-color flash cards, incentive calendars to keep kids motivated, and a certificate of completion. Each of the workbooks reviews the year the child has just completed and previews the year they are about to enter.
In addition to new cover designs, the workbooks feature two extra weeks of cross-curricular activities, all new social studies material, integrated fitness and character development exercises, updated reading and word lists for each grade level, and extension activities to encourage outdoor learning and play.
Summer Bridge Activities is the perfect way to keep skills sharp all summer long and prepare children for the upcoming school year. The workbooks encourage parental involvement and are designed to get kids active – keeping their bodies and minds in optimal shape.
We recieved the Bridging Grades 3 to 4 and 4 to 5. I try to bridge the gab during the summer by having them read and do a few math problems here and there. But I homeschool and sometimes I just get burnt out from school myself. So, when I got these workbooks I was pleased! I was impressed that my child didn't complain about having to do the work. That to me is a added bonus!
