Make Summer Count
First of all, summer should be fun. Here are two fun programs that also have the power to transform your child’s learning skills so the next school year has a better chance of fulfilling your and your child’s aspirations.
Program: SkateKids (Ramps To Reading)
Best Bet For: Reading Comprehension
What They’ll Love: The games themselves, with the skateboarding/surfboarding/snowboarding) theme and a great rewards system.
Why You’ll Love It: Most reading programs test comprehension. This program actually develops comprehension by strengthening the skills that we use when we understand something. Two of these skills are called working memory and visualization – the ability to hold information in our mind, and to create a mental image of something we read about.
Ages: 4 to 12 (up to 6th grade reading level)
Best Bet For: Overall English Language Arts
What They’ll Love: The spelling and word games (really!), the adventure of Quest Mode, and the fact that everything is gamified.
Why You’ll Love It: Let’s face it. Most opportunities for your child’s future education require excellent language, reading and writing skills. Your student can slave over word lists, vocabulary and spelling rules, or they can learn by playing.
Ages: 6 to Adult (through 10th Grade Language Arts Standards)
