Scholastic sent me these Summer Express workbooks to check out, and is also providing a giveaway prize.
The summer slide is real, and I definitely try to help my kids avoid it over the summer. While I definitely want them to enjoy their summer with fun activities like summer camp, softball games, and our family vacation, it’s also important that they don’t lose the skills that they gained over the school year. Their school assigns a specific reading book for each grade, but I also like them to do some workbooks as well. The Weekly Reader: Summer Express books from Scholastic include curriculum-based work in vocabulary, grammar, writing, reading, and math. Each book contains 100 activity pages that are meant to be completed over 10 weeks, as well as stickers for completing each activity, as well as an incentive chart and completion certificate.
Here’s the official information about the books:
From the award-winning editors of Weekly Reader comes this collection of colorful, fun-filled activity pages designed to reinforce academic skills and knowledge through engaging activities. Targeted to specific grade levels, each book will help prevent summer learning loss with age-appropriate activities that meet today’s higher education standards. With more than 100 curriculum-based activities targeting vocabulary, grammar, writing, reading, and math, these books will help give children a head start in the coming school year.
The books are small enough to tuck into your carry-on bag during your summer vacation, and are a great way to avoid the summer slide.
