Avoid the Summer Slide with Summer Brain Quest

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Workman Publishing. All opinions are my own.

The school year will be over before we know it. I know my daughter is counting down the days! We are all looking forward to summer fun with lots of trips to the beach, backyard barbecues and a week at summer camp. With so much going on, it’s very easy to fall into the “summer slide” where you lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math and reading. I’m guilty of letting it happen where we put learning on the backburner and don’t even think about it until school rolls around again in September.
