Be smart. Be Active. Stay Cool.
The SUMMER FIT curriculum for kids will help your child be smart by staying on top of classroom skills in reading, writing, math, and language arts (so they don’t forget everything they learned last year over the summer.) It will help your child be active by using a daily fitness schedule to keep moving. And it will help them “stay cool” by teaching them the importance of kindness, respect, honesty, and responsibility.
There is one page of “school work” for a child to do each day. It is perfect for your child in playing school, and keeping their skills up to date at the same time.
I have a child who just finished kindergarten and one who just finished fourth grade, so I was given one for each grade to try out. I found the level of work suitable for where the kids were when they finished their grade, and covering everything from simple phonics and classification skills to more advanced topics like identifying angles, counting money, and other necessary skills. There are also math problems like fractions, adding, subtracting, multiplication and division.
If you are looking for something to keep your child active this summer, then SUMMER FIT would be something to consider. There are games your children can play on line at www.summerfitlearning.com and there are trivia apps available. On-line videos show kids how to exercise correctly, and there additional downloads available on-line.
