LeapFrog Summer Camp- Let the Learning Continue!

As I have previously mentioned my family is officially on summer break.  Last week all three of my sons finished their respective classes- preschool for my youngest two, and first grade for my eldest.   We are currently having a wonderful time on the shores of Lake Superior with campfires, hiking, swimming (indoor pool), and lots of rock throwing.

But even while we are on vacation and certainly when we return home, I know that it is important to continue a few simple learning activities.  I’m certainly not talking about hours upon hours of tedious instruction at the hands of their mother/former teacher.  That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

According to the Review of Educational Research, the summer loss equaled about one month on a grade-level equivalent scale and effect of summer break was more detrimental for math than for reading and most detrimental for math computation and spelling.

Luckily, I predict my now second grader will be okay.  This week as we have been driving along the North Shore and I have been trying to enjoy the sights, my seven year old keeps whining for me to give him math problems on our dry erase board.  I have no idea how this child can be mine.  I despise math, a revelation I have not disclosed to him.  But his desire to keep working his skills is inspiring.  Along with a lot of reading I plan on helping continue to practice these skills, even if it is at the cost of my sight seeing experience:)

And while my eldest son has a clear direction when it comes to learning, my four year old need more direction.  That makes sense, obviously.  His younger age requires more direction for everything.  That’s why we are continuing his summer learning with the LeapFrog Summer Camp.

Starting on June 4th, LeapFrog has created a FREE 8-week program to help keep your little ones learning this summer.  I don’t have the time or energy to create fun and educational activities for my children.  Honestly, who in the heck does?  Perhaps only homeschooling moms?  But I will gladly take a pre-created enriched curriculum.  Check out each weekly theme below.

How awesome does this look?!  I have no doubt my four year old will love this program, especially since I am labeling it truly “only for him”.  While his older brother will be working on math problems and reading, he will have his own special work.  Thanks LeapFrog for helping create a sense of balance in my world:)

Look for another post in a couple of weeks with an update on our experience:)
