Summer is around the corner which means that you need to find fun activities for your children. Sports and summer camps are great ways to keep your child active physically, but what about being active mentally? Here are 3 ways to keep your kids motivated to learn this Summer!
1. Set Aside Time Each Day To Read
Reading is a great way to improve your child’s vocabulary. It also gets them in the habit of picking up books for enjoyment. Reading doesn’t have to be a chore, it’s an escape from reality into another world. Showing your children the beauty of reading will help improve their vocabulary as well as their writing in the future.
2. Math in day-to-day life
Showing your children how money works is an important lesson so that they can begin to understand finance. Doing this lesson on a more fundamental scale will help them grasp the idea better. A fun way to teach your kids this would be giving them $5 and going to the dollar store and see what they can buy. This improves their math skills and teaches them the basics of money.
3. Teach them fun cooking lessons
Another way to keep your children active this Summer is through teaching them how to cook or bake! Making a list of what ingredients are needed for the grocery store is a good way to help their writing skills. Similarly, when you and your child are cooking together, you will have to add a certain amount of condiments to the food. So having them measure out the ingredients will also improve their math. Plus, you are teaching them how to cook! A valuable skill for any and everyone.
As we can see, there are many fun activities to do with your children this Summer. Along with fun family trips, you can encourage your kids to learn in fun ways.
