The “summer slide” is real, but avoidable

With summer vacation on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to keep your child’s mind engaged this summer. Research has shown that the “summer slide” is a very real phenomenon; happily, it’s also avoidable. There’s plenty of evidence to suggest that even 3o minutes of reading, writing or math each day will make a world of difference come September.

Our advice: working with a coach or otherwise, set aside time each week to devote to academics. Whether it’s reading from a summer reading list, journaling summer adventures, or fun math games on the computer, engaging your child’s mind will pay huge dividends come September. To learn more about how Engaging Minds can help defend against the summer slide via one-on-one coaching and workshops, please find our offerings here and see our flyer below!
