Anywhere from one to three months of grade-level learning is often lost during summer vacation. Here’s how to avoid the brain drain — with a little help from technology.
By Laura St. John, Discovery Kids Puterbugs and TLC Parentables
In today’s fast-paced world, summer is a refreshing time for our kids to kick back, relax, and just be kids! But research also shows that summer is a time for learning loss: A staggering one to three months of grade-level learning in both reading and math skills is typically lost during this precious time.
To help your child retain academic skills and knowledge over summer vacation, you can simply turn to the help of one of the most engaging tools in your home – your computer. But how you use it will determine whether it actually helps or harms your child. So don’t unplug – just be sure to use it wisely.
Summer is still a time to chill out, unplug, and let our kids be kids. But when you do plug in, make sure you tap into summer learning opportunities on the computer that help your child learn!
