When the Summer Bridge Activities books first arrived T told me I was the meanest mom around. I couldn’t help but giggle. All she could think of is that I was going to make her work hard during her summer break when the last thing she wanted to think about was homework. However to her surprise we were able to make it fun.
During our road-trip to Kentucky in July T brought her Summer Bridge Activities book that was created to bridge the gap between 6th grade and 7th which is the grade she will be going into this school year. While she was working in the activity book it started up conversations about the Social Study areas. We discussed geographic locations and famous monuments. I was also surprised at the amount of content in this book that she did not know. It truly shows how much each school district can vary on what they teach as well as how much a child can forget during the summer.
I also received the Pre-K Summer Bridge Activities book for Noah. Although he won’t be in Kindergarten this school year I think it is very important to prepare him. I plan to work on this book while my girls are at school and work through the entire year and book so he is fully on or past Pre-K level by next school year. I love the activities in these books and I think he will truly enjoy working through it with me.
I highly recommend these books for all age children. I think it’s important to keep their minds fresh during the summer months and finding easy to follow workbooks to help with learning at home is great.
Full Disclosure: The Summer Bridge Activities books were sent to me to use as samples in conducting my review. All opinions shared in this post are 100% mine, the blog owner. I recommend the books for purchase because I do believe in them after conducting my review.
