I was recently adding activities in the calendar for my grandson when I realized that we have only 5 WEEKS of summer vacation left! Whether you have more or less time to your summer vacation, the fact is that those hard earned academic skills, especially reading, writing and math, require constant reinforcement throughout the summer. Let’s start with some writing practice.
Whether they are beginners or just need to remind their hands how to hold onto a pencil, coloring is a great way for your visual learner to practice using those muscles required for legible handwriting. Young Rembrandts is joining the coloring craze with their own beautifully designed and drawn coloring pages.
This year marks our country’s 242nd birthday. Celebrate our great and powerful nation with some fun and family friendly activities.
The kids in our area have been out of school for three weeks now and while I’m delighted to see my grandson enjoying his summer “off,” I can’t help thinking school is going to be back sooner than we think. If you have a child that struggled with their times tables at the end of fourth grade, fifth grade is coming soon, and without practice over the summer, fifth grade is going to be even harder. What to do?
Come join us in honoring the men and women who gave their lives to preserve our freedom this Memorial Day as Bette Fetter, founder and CEO of Young Rembrandts and author of Being Visual, invites you to a fun Memorial Day activity by demonstrating how to draw a cartoon soldier.
If you have a visual learner, a reading program may be the last thing you want to think about this summer. Never fear – your local library knows how to make reading fun for your child, so it’s easy on you. Our local library, like so many others around the country, has a variety of special reading events throughout the summer to keep kids reading.
