Can you believe it? It’s time for school to be winding down and deciding on ways to keep your child on track over the summer. I was just talking with my son’s kindergarten teacher yesterday about summer programs. She mentioned they had a summer reading program 3 days a week that would be great to keep him learning and in a semi-routine. We also have swim lessons and other activities but I do agree it is important not to totally slack off learning in the summer. Another great resource to use not only in the summer but all year round is ABC Mouse.
The Step-by-Step Learning Path presents the full ABCmouse.com
curriculum in a carefully designed program of more than 450 lessons in six levels. As your child completes each lesson, he or she is guided to the next one and is motivated to continue learning by ABCmouse.com’s Tickets and Rewards System. I have been using this program with my preschooler and kindergartener and it is great, keeps them engaged and learning while having fun! I really like that I can have different profiles and accounts for each of my kids and that all their progress is tracked and built upon.
The lessons of the Step-by-Step Learning Path consist of books, puzzles, games, songs, art activities, and/or printables that relate to a specific topic. Each lesson offers children several different ways to learn, in accordance with the recommendations of early childhood experts.
