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.
Writing requires visual learners to translate their rich multi-dimensional images into words and get them on paper. But they often lack the sequencing skills needed to separate and to organize their thoughts. They can also struggle to create context, use comparisons and provide supporting detail because they’re used to the immediacy and holistic nature of visual thinking. Fortunately, I have lots of ways to help you help your visual learners feel more successful at 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.
