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.
Many of the ideas that I have shared with you throughout our summer Brain Drain series are excellent tools for your visual learner to use throughout the school year to reinforce those new concepts that they will inevitably be learning, and possibly having difficulty grasping.
Visual thinkers have a lot of ideas happening all the time- but the ideas are pictures inside their head. Writing requires them to translate their images into words and get them on paper. A great way to help them translate those images into words is to have them start by drawing a picture.
