Smarties, we decided to reach out to April Whitlock from Fundanoodle for activities you can do with your little Smarties during the Summer (and there is a giveaway!) Here is what she had to say:
SUMMER’S COMING! And with it the inevitable boredom and summer slide!
Some kids are scheduled every week with camps or vacations. Others summer calendar is a blank-slate meant to be filled with impromptu activities. Whatever your Little Learner’s summer plans, I can guarantee that at some point you will hear the words “I’m bored!”
Boredom is GOOD for Little Learners!
And guess what? That’s totally OK! Psychologists (and even the Girl Scouts) even recommend that children should be bored in the summer!! Boredom sparks creativity teaches self-reliance and develops a child’s ability to take care of themselves.
Honestly, boredom isn’t what worries me about the long, lazy days of summer. I get worked up about the educational losses that happen without dedicated learning time away from school!
Fight the Summer Slide!
Summer Learning Loss is real! The equivalent of one month of overall learning is lost during summer vacation! And it can take up to six weeks in the fall to re-learn the information lost over the summer! Luckily, studies show that it only takes a few minutes every day to combat the summer slide!
One great way to both prevent boredom AND stop summer learning loss is Fundanoodle! With one purchase of our Gift Services program, you can have an age-appropriate, hands-on early education product mailed to your Little Learner each month during the summer! Who doesn’t love getting mail?? And especially something that is FUN to do (and you’ll love that its educational tool).
