Summer Learning Gift Pack Giveaway from Carson-Dellosa

0 Shares


My eldest son has nine days left of school.  He is eagerly awaiting the ability to sleep in, in the mornings.  He is also looking forward to no homework.  And while some time off is essential and important to recharge his interest in learning, it is also important to continue the learning process over the summer.  As a former teacher I understand that just because school is out of session doesn’t mean that learning should be discontinued.  You can be sure there will be plenty of book reading and a number of worksheets completed this summer.  As they say, use it or lose it!

According to a study by Johns Hopkins University, by ninth grade, the lack of summer learning can be blamed for roughly two-thirds of the achievement gap.

Carson-Dellosa is dedicated to helping children and parents continue the learning process at all times.

In an effort to help one lucky family continue the learning process this summer they will win the following prize pack

Please use the Rafflecopter entry method provided.

U.S. only.  Winner will be verified.
