Summer Fit Learning {Curriculum Review}

Without opportunities to learn and practice essentials skills over the summer, most children fall behind academically. Research shows that summer learning loss varies, but children can lose the equivalency of 2.5 months of math and 2 months of reading skills while away from school. Children run the risk of losing more than just academic knowledge during the summer. Research also shows that children are at greater risk of actually gaining more weight during summer vacation than during the school year without daily play, activity and physical fitness.

We had an opportunity to check out this fun series (we got PreK - Kindergarten) from Summer Fit Learning.  What looks like a "regular" summer workbook is really so much more.  Inside the pages of this book you will find activities that focus on several key areas:  having a fit brain, fit body, and fit values.

Summer Fit workbooks are divided into 10 sections that coordinate with the traditional 10 weeks of summer.  Each section offers an overview and incentive calendar followed by 10 pages of activities for each week.  It is recommended that a child completes 2 pages per day.  This offers a simple routine that reinforces basic skills, physical fitness, healthy habits,  character building and social skills.  Activities support common core standards and progressively increase in difficulty.  By the end of the workbook your child is ready for the grade ahead.

At you will find a lot of extras too!  Exercise videos, ideas to help you implement a summer game plan for learning, and free downloadable Summer Reading Lists, and Book Report forms keep your child reading all summer long!

Summer Fit Learning has books from PreK to 8th grade.  You can find out where to purchase here.

Maggie loves workbooks and has enjoyed toting this one through the house.  If you are looking for a simple but effective summer school workbook then you might enjoy Summer Fit Learning!
