How to Create a Great Summer for your Children
Read!This is a great activity that will boost the imagination of your children and help to improve their reading comprehension. There are many different ways to motivate your children to read.
1. Visit your local library often. Many of them have their own summer reading programs that will reward your children for reading!
2. Make a reward system at home. Set goals for them to reach, such as a certain number of books for younger students or chapters for older ones. When they reach this goal take them somewhere fun, like a movie or the beach. Don’t forget that your children should choose their own reading material.
3. Read in front of them! There’s no better way to help your child learn that reading can be fun than to show them that you love it.
ExerciseThere are many outdoor activities that you and your children can do together; going for a bike ride, visiting the park, or taking your dog for a walk are quick and easy ways to keep your family active. Your children will stay fit, plus exercise enhances their well-being and happiness. Remember to apply sunscreen to protect your children from sunburns!
Cook!The kitchen is a great place to help your child retain and practice their math skills. A recipe is the perfect chance to apply math skills to a real life situation. Have your child help you calculate measurements for a double or triple recipe. It’s also a great way to bond with your children!
TutoringSummer tutoring is a great opportunity for your children to practice their school material and to “get ahead” for next school year. Remember that summer learning loss is often due to a lack of academic activities. Plus, tutors can provide tips to stay organized in school and other strategies for great academic achievement.
We hope that these tips help you to create a memorable summer! Remember that The Tutoring Center League City has academic programs that will provide your children with the academic abilities for a solid foundation. Consider us next time you are looking for tutoring in League City.
