SUMMER FIT ACTIVITIES

Summer learning loss has been documented for over 100 years in our country, and in countries around the world. It is also known as the summer slide, the summer gap and the summer brain drain.

Summer Fit ActivitiesTM reduces summer leaning loss by reviewing grade appropriate skills in reading, writing, math, language arts, science and geography. Exercises start as an early year review while progressively becoming more difficult over the course of the summer until they are actually previewing materials for the grade ahead. The goal is not to overwhelm children during the summer, but to keep their minds active and engaged so they do not forget what they have learned. Summer Fit includes daily fitness and play activities that increase movement on a daily basis and build healthy lifestyle habits. Growing bodies of research show the positive connection between physical activity and academic success including memory retention and overall learning ability. Core Values are included to help children build good character and increase awareness and responsibility of their actions both in the home and the classroom.

Summer Fit ActivitiesTM is self-motivating, fun and easy to use at home or on the road for family vacation. Start your child at the head of the class in the new school year with Summer Fit ActivitiesTM.
