As I have said before, I love summer time, sleeping late, relaxed schedule, fun in the sun, love it all. But there is one thing that worries me about our relaxed days in the sun, the backward slide that a lot of children have in their academic skills. Each one of my boys has a tendacy to learn things then forget skills if they are not being used on a regular basis. I found the Scholastic Printable Worksheets. Scholastic Printables provides access to over 15,000 teaching worksheets and printable resources for students from Pre-K to 8th grade. Printables can be used for in class curriculums, home schooling, or enchancing and complementing children’s education before and after school.
If you subscribe now, use the code PO15AD to save 15%. Some of the packages are as low as $8.99 I use the Multiplication Worksheets for Joel. The printables have fun graphics on them, which if you have a kid like mine anything that makes it seem fun and not learning, is the way to go. We have really enjoyed these printables this summer and will continue to use them, during the school year for a bit of extra reinforcement of the learned skills.
What are your plans to stop the backward slide for your child?
