Read along with books on tape.
- Turn off the television, and pop in a book! A story of
interest to the child will be even easier to follow with the
help of a tape to read along with. Besides being a valuable way
to brush up the reading skills, it can really bring a book to
Play board games. - Board games are great for making
you count and use basic to intermediate math and reading skills.
Plus it provides a terrific chance for the family to get
together for some major quality time.
Shop Till You Drop. - Shopping for the new fall
wardrobe not only builds self esteem, it provides great exercise
(walking), and an excuse to practice math skills as they try to
guess what the total with tax will be.
sssssssParents are smart to take advantage of these last days
of summer. The kids that become too attached to television or
video games all summer might be overwhelmed that first day back,
feeling like they've been thrown into the deep end of a pool
they can't swim in.
