Summer lends itself to lots of outdoor activities for learning. Getting the whole body involved is a great way to encourage visual learners to continue learning while still having fun. We have found lots of STEAM activities to keep the kids engaged.
Visual learners typically have a hard time formulating their thoughts into words when it comes time to write about something they have just read. We have created this simple activity to help them figure out what they want to say by drawing a picture first and then writing.
This summer we’re going to keep it simple. While you’re busy enjoying summer, we’re going to share fun, easy to do activities for your kids to keep them at the top of their brain game. They did so much at school this year, we want to keep them in tip top shape and ready to school in the fall. To make it easy for you – we’re going to focus on three areas; reading, writing and drawing.
The school year is coming to an end and what a crazy ride it has been. Go ahead, take a little time to relax and rejuvenate. You’ve earned it.
But don’t take too long of a break. If summer days are consistently lazy – a significant amount of what went into building your child’s brain during the school year will start to leak out. I have just the thing to prevent this loss.
In case you missed them on our Facebook page, here are our top posts for April. We shared information about what causes Autism to what to say when the kid say they’re “bored.” Be sure to LIKE the Bette Fetter Facebook page (if you haven’t already) to join in the conversation and to follow along as I share ideas and suggestions relevant to visual learners.
