I AM SO READY FOR SUMMER!
No more homework, no more running around to make drop offs and pickups……. just gorgeous weather to have an adventure! Then that dreaded summer “brain drain” pops its ugly head up. Like so many parents I want to make the most of our summer with lots of travel and fun but I want my boys to have a successful 2016-2017 academic year so I cannot slack on educational activities.
Thank goodness our friends at Classroom Direct, our one stop shop for school supplies, also has a wide range of learning products.
Check out my video with some of our favorite “packable” learning products.
Rock and my favorites:
Scholastic Idiom Tales ($25.27 for kids 6 to 8 years old)
That includes eight funny stories that focus on comprehension and writing skills.
A pen which engages kids to answer questions requires 2 AAA batteries and works with multiple Hot Dots cards that focus on math and vocabulary.
Learning Resources Writing Prompt Cubes ($10.57 for kids 6+)
These have become my go-to non-tech restaurant distraction. The cubes includes 36 prompts that ask a variety of questions like, “One day I want to visit…..” that encourage creativity and storytelling as we wait.
All the products you see in the video and above retail for $9 to $39 they are so very affordable and are geared for rising 2nd and 3rd graders.
Better yet they are PACKABLE!
Summer is a popular time to travel especially for the Dancing Hotdogs family so wherever we go this summer we have no excuses! Backseat, on an airplane or some exotic location we can keep up summer learning.
