Help Your Kids Stay Sharp this Summer

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of InfluenceCentral for Carson-Dellosa. I reviewed the free content on their website  to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

My daughter and I are very excited about spending quality time together this Summer. We have even compiled a Summer Bucket List full of ideas and fun things to do like visiting the zoo, walking the dogs, playing games, and going swimming.

Summer is a great time to spend outdoors having fun with the kids but according to a survery conducted by Carson-Dellosa, students forget or “lose” some skills, knowledge or grade-level equivalency during the Summer as reported by 84% of teachers.

To combat this problem and to help your kids stay sharp this Summer, use the Carson-Dellosa Summer Learning Activities website. Offering free and fun educational games, sample books, printable worksheets, and activities you can use all summer long to help stop summer learning loss.

Even if your kids insist that they don’t want to spend time learning over their Summer break, they will enjoy this site. The Summer Learning Computer Games are fun and educational, which is great for even the most hesitant of students.

I love that you can download worksheets for on the go learning. Even when we are camping and without a wifi signal, we can pass some of the time working on our math and reading skills. With over 900 printable and reproducible activities there is something for everyone.

When your child reaches a milestone and improves their skills in a subject, you can reward them with a fun printable certificate while encouraging them to have a #SmarterSummer.

Playing games during the Summer was already a part of the plans but making sure we don’t fall victim to the Summer slide is a huge bonus, especially when these learning games are so much fun! We really liked the Pump Up the Place Value game and Jam Session.

These games are so much fun my daughter probably doesn’t even realize they are helping her improve her. We printed out the Addition Word Search and she loved the combination of math problems with a word search.

Her other favorite free printable was the Division Hidden Picture Puzzle. After solving the problems she was rewarded with a hidden picture made up of all of the answers. I think giving her something to work towards kept her going even when the problems were challenging.

I remember one long school holiday we had when I was skill in Zambia, it was 3 months long and when we returned to school I couldn't even remember how to spell 'is' that's how bad it was for me. Glad to know most parents are ensuring that their kids are skill learning whilst enjoying their summer break.

I've heard that children can lose a lot of what they learn if they don't stay sharp over the summer. sounds like the perfect site to help them keep up with educational activities over the summer. I will definitely check it out! Can't wait for the kids to try Pump Up the Place Value game and Jam Session. Sounds like fun!

This sounds like something my kids would like. They don't like to study, but I agree that they should continue learning even if they are on vacation. Outdoor activities, reading and computer games are fun ways to learn.

I completely agree that kids need refreshers during the summer! It can be done so easily with sites like this and even a few questions or educational activities a day can help offset the summer slide! Thanks for sharing this awesome resource!

I love this idea for my niece and her friends. Once school is out, we are always looking for ways to keep the children entertained but learning. The fact that you can make printables and let them learn while playing school to give a sense of imagination play is great. Getting back in to the school frame of mind after a long, sometimes mindless Summer, is always a rough transition. Here you can make it fun and educational!
