My family does not have big plans for this summer as of yet. Working in a school full-time, I am blessed to be able to stay home with my kids during the summer. I cherish the time! My daughter is finishing the first grade this year and I was not sure what to do with her to maintain her skills besides reading. I received a Summer Fit Learning Workbook to review and I was impressed by everything it has to offer.
The Summer Fit workbook contains kindergarten to first grade level reading, math, writing, and language arts activities. What I loved even more was a daily fitness component that lays out exercise routines for your children. Your child can choose whether they would like “Aerobic, Strength and Sport activities using a Fitness Index developed by professional trainers, school coaches and parents”. You can also go online and you and your child can watch fitness videos that reinforce the workbook. Lastly, the workbook also talks about character and citizenship values, such as trustworthiness, self-discipline, and courage (to name a few). Activities and exercises are provided for parents to use in talking with their kids about these positive traints. “Each week a different value is introduced and reinforced using real world examples of a person who represents that value”.
This workbook is such a comprehensive workbook. I would love to try the first through second grade version because I think my daughter is more of that level, but I am really looking forward to using all of the activities, particularly the exercise and core values activities with her this summer.
