Each summer, parents and teachers alike try to find a solution for the summer slide. You know the one. That long slope where most students lose approximately two months of grade level equivalency in math, and many also lose reading achievement, over the summer. It’s a slippery slope parents have tried to manage for years. Now, #1 bestselling Brain Quest brand, has an effective new tool to prevent the summer slide: Summer Brain Quest.
Summer Brain Quest
Coming to stores April 18th, Summer Brain Quest is the newest extension to Brain Quest. My older two children (now in college) used to love learning and staying on top of their favorite subjects over the summer using Brain Quest flashcards. Now, their younger sisters can fight the summer slide with Summer Brain Quest workbooks. Each one targets the summer months between kindergarten and 6th grade to help kids retain the information learned over the school year.
Summer Brain Quest offers a “one-of-a-kind learning experience that delivers personalized learning for every type of kid.” This educational method tailors the exercises to meet each child’s strengths, needs, and interests. For us, each one of the girls has their own learning style. As we homeschool them, we can cater their curriculum in ways that help each of them learn in their way, at their own pace. We’ve found over the years that this enables them to learn more and to learn better. Knowing that Summer Brain Quest empowers kids to have their own voice when it comes to what and how they learn makes it an excellent solution for our family!
Not to mention, Summer Brain Quest is structured like a game. Each workbook features a pull-out map that acts as a summer learning guide. As they complete pages AND pursue outdoor activities, they earn stickers to apply along their map route. In fact, the student decides their path on the map based on what excites them most. This allows each child to customize their summer learning path and they can even jump around the workbook to keep things fun and interesting. After all, no two students are exactly alike, therefore no two learning paths should be exactly the same.
