Preventing Summer Slide with Brain Quest + Giveaway

This is a partnered post with Workman Publishing. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I know our children are counting down the days until summer vacation and probably don’t even care about preventing summer slide. Which makes sense. They are kids and all they’re thinking about is having fun. But it has been proven that some children lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year, during the summer months. Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math, and many also lose reading achievement. With as hard as our children are forced to work in school, losing even just a little of what they’ve learned is a big deal.
