Are you worried about your kids forgetting everything they learned this school year? Do you think your kids will resist using their summer vacation to keep learning and get prepared for the fall? Summer learning doesn’t have to be a drag for you or your kids. You can find ways to keep them learning and entertained while still having fun and going about your summer plans. We have several vacations and lots of activities planned for this summer so I’ve written a summer curriculum for my 4-year-old that can work with our plans. I want to keep him having so much fun he doesn’t even notice that he is also learning!
My lesson plans are written for a Pre-K/early Kindergarten grade level but can be easily adapted to fit any age/grade level. For example, instead of teaching your child to write the letter A, you can teach them to spell words that begin with the letter A, or start with teaching them to recognize A and a. These plans are intended to be used as a guide, please feel free to alter them to suit your needs and your family. Be creative!
Each week will contain a weekly lesson plan and accompanying worksheets. Links to suggested books, music, and programs are provided when possible. Check back often this summer for additional learning materials and weekly cirriculums.
