“Do you take a summer break from homeschooling? Do you think kids (and parents) need to put the workbooks aside for a while, but you’re worried about the “summer slide”? These are some of the questions Lynna Sutherland from homeschooling without training wheels throws at her readers in her recent collaboration post with Pam Barnhill.
Having children practice math on their computer or tablets can actually be a great way to add a little fun to their math learning during the summer. Smartick can be that one program that offers quality screen time for your children. In fact, many families welcome the opportunity to get started on Smartick during the summer months and trade some TV time for math practice on their tablets.
“I know there’s a lot of buzz on social media about ways to have a “screen free” summer. But how about ways to have a “screen intentional” summer? Online and app learning can be a great way to practice math over the summer!”- writes Lynna.
Smartick helps your children keep their math skills sharp during the summer break. Just 15 minutes a day is enough to get them up to speed for the upcoming school year. You’ll see them work on mental calculation and algebra while developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. You will see them play games that reinforce their cognitive skills such as perception, attention, memory, and logical reasoning.
