Summer break is a sun-drenched flurry of activities, but before we know it, the first day of school will be here. These summer activity books, ranging from preschool to 5th grade, will help your child enter the new school year with confidence.
The Weekly Reader: Summer Express workbooks allow kids to either review the previous year's materials or ladder up to the next. Each workbook is designed to include a mix of math, language arts, and reading activities — and is aligned with nationwide Common Core standards. (Quick reminder: The Common Core is a set of state standards outlining what kids should know in each grade.)
To go one step further this summer, pair a workbook with a favorite title to set your child up for reading success (for instance, these workbooks and books make great pairings). Popular series and entertaining books are also a great opportunity for quality family bonding time. A combination of leisurely reading and workbook activities will help kids sharpen important skills during this break from school.
