Even before school lets out for the summer, our kid’s focus changes. They become distracted (more so than usual) and think only about one thing – the inevitable arrival of summer vacation. And who can blame them, I’m sure teachers experience the same restless feeling of anticipation of some much-deserved time off from school. So you can imagine what happens during the summer months. The term “summer slide” was created to describe how most students lose nearly two months of grade-level equivalency in math and reading efficiency. Making it that much more difficult when the next school year begins.
School and learning become “out of sight, out of mind” for kids during the summer, but they don’t have to. My kids love opportunities to learn so long as they are presented in a fun way, and the new series from Workman Publishing called Summer Brain Quest does just that.
Summer Brain Quest is a brand new extension of the popular Brain Quest series designed to help prevent summer slide for children from kindergarten through sixth grade. The books offer a one-of-a-kind learning experience. They are structured like a game, with a pull-out map that acts as a learning quest to engage and empower kids to customize their learning experience within the books. The map allows them to earn stickers for completing pages and for pursuing outdoor activities ensuring they stay active as well.
My daughter took one look at the new Summer Brain Quest workbooks and insisted that she wanted to do them all!
Then she proceeded to put on the fun swim goggles they sent us!
I was really excited by how interested she was in using the workbooks. The artwork is visually appealing, fresh and super fun making it easy to get drawn into each and every page.
All Summer Brain Quest exercises and activities are aligned to Common Core State Standards, Next Generation State Standards, and state social studies standard.
