8 Summer Learning Programs
Did you know that according to Wikipedia, the average student loses the equivalent to 3+ months of learning in the summer? While it is nice to have a break from the everyday hustle of the school year, as parents it is our responsible to break this cycle. After I spent hours with my son fighting with me and both of us mad and unwilling to compromise, I came to the conclusion that traditional worksheets and regimented work just does not work for my son. My daughter on the other hand, even at 3 years old, loves to sit with paper and worksheets. Each child is different. You know your child best, so maybe what works for us doesn’t work for you.
Lucky for us, we live in a time of computer programs and apps that can make learning fun and different. I’ve compiled a list of 8 of our favorite apps, computer programs and games that have your kids not even knowing they are learning!
- Splash Math
- Kid’s Academy Educational Apps
- Finder’s Keepers game
- Hot Dots
- Miss Humblebee’s Academy
- Teach My Preschooler
I have found Pinterest to be a great asset for finding free printable worksheets and other fun ideas! Check out what I have pinned in my Education board here!
