How to Continue Education During Summer Break

Posted on 06-28-2017

During summer vacation, children can lose the equivalent of up to two months of learning. Here are some ways to keep up the learning all year long for your preschooler.

Plan a Trip

Whether you’re going to a different state or to the beach, you can use this as a learning opportunity. Teach your little ones about the history of the place you’re going to, or draw pictures of their favorite place they’ve visited. Teach them about things they’ve never seen before, whether that be a shell, an animal, or a train, and tell them about the state bird/plant/etc.

Play Counting Games

To get your preschoolers thinking about numbers, play some games that get them counting with their every day routines. This can be as simple as having them count how many blue cars they see on the drive to the park, or playing with numbered LEGOs.

Go to a Children’s Museum

If your area has access to a children’s museum—or any museum, for that matter--take advantage and bring your little ones to see all the art, science, and history there is to learn. Many museums have a children’s section designed just for interactive learning, and it makes for fun memories for the whole family.

Work on Summer Reading

During the school year, your youngster is continually working on their reading skills. It’s important to keep this up at home, as well. Ask your child’s school for a list of recommended age-appropriate books to read throughout the summer. You can even pick out a captivating chapter book and read it to your little one each night before bed.
