Making sure their children get an overall good education is important for many parents, myself included. So when those lazy summer months come along, I worry they will forget all those new math and language concepts. In the past, I stocked up on workbooks and visited the library on rainy days. But my kids are so busy with swimming meets, synchronized swimming, slumber parties, visiting with friends and family, and late nights that little time is left for educational pursuits.
- It covers reading, writing and math based on national standards.
- It also covers fitness, nutrition and core values, such as honesty, self-discipline and kindness. And the fitness exercises are diverse and age-appropriate.
- The work is clearly divided into 10 weeks, and my kids knew exactly what pages to do every day.
- At the beginning of each week, there is a page that states what topics will be covered followed by an incentive contract, which my daughter and son liked because they could keep track of their progress and work toward their weekly goals and rewards.
- At the end of each week, there is a page of activities to do with family and friends and also a booklist.
- Each day's work only takes about 30 minutes.
- Colourful icons make it easy to identify a mind, body or value activity or skill.
- Additional games, activities, booklists and book report sheets are available for downloading on the publisher's website summerfitlearning.com.
- It's a fun and creative workbook!
