Kick the Summer I Am Bored Comments

So we are into July now of Summer vacation! The first couple of weeks was fun, games, and just all excited about being on summer vacation right? Then comes the “Mommy, I’m bored”, “Mommy, I need something to do”, or “Mommy, I don’t want to play that again.

We were contacted about the Summer Bridge Activities books.

My oldest M, has had a very busy summer, but she is really missing school. She definitely takes after her mom as being a book worm. She was very sad school was letting out for so long over the summer. When I showed her this book, she immediately jumped up and down. She said “Mommy, this is my very own homework for summer?” Yes, my dear! There is a page for everyday or you can even do two or more pages a day. M and I have had a really great time working on this book together. It is preparing her for the first grade with reading, writing, math, and language skills. When she completes a day all on her own, she gets the biggest smile on her face. I really think this is going to push her confidence and self-esteem levels even higher for this next school year.

Also, there are awards in the book you can give your child for their accomplishments. Any child loves awards and I have been pairing them up with my own. We have been doing TCBY days on Wednesday for her very own special reward for doing a great job.

I really love how this workbook let’s them still have a great summer vacation from all the school work, but it is just enough to keep their wheels turning in their mind so they don’t completely forget about all the skills they have learned.

I am going to give away a Summer Bridge Activities Book to one of my fellow readers. Just let me know in the comments below of what Summer Activity you all have been doing to keep the “I am bored” comments away. I will run this giveaway till Sunday night July 19, 11:59pm EST. So you can get your book next week to get started. You will be able to pick any grade.

    Life is so chaotic here, nobody has a chance to be bored! But I’ve heard wonderful things about these books. My homeschool shelf is growing like crazy, so I’d love to add this to it!

    We have been keeping busy by heading to our local beach, reading, borrowing videos from the library, meeting up with friends, hosting get-togethers, heading to the local farms, using our bounce house. Wow, I think I need a vacation after all that.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Jen, the kids are working on Handwriting without Tears this summer. It’s good practice for Bug who needs to work on his letter formation and for Princess who’ll be doing a lot more writing in first grade. They are both enjoying it and it still keeps their little minds and hands learning. This workbook sounds great. Princess needs something to do while we are waiting at therapy 4 times a week.

    to beat the summer boredoms i went to the museum this weekend – hehe, not a very “summerly” activity but it was air conditioned and very nice nonetheless. sometimes the random things are the most fun! and anything beats sitting in the office typing through documents and dealing with computers all day! justine@hostgator.com

    I always find it helpful to have a vacation or some sort of camp planned around the middle of summer to help break it up. Last year my kids went to a zoo camp for a week which not only gave them something to look forward to, but also gave them tons to talk about after it was done.
