At the beginning of summer break I always have really good intentions. I imagine really well balanced days where my kids are doing equal parts learning, relaxing, helping around the house and having fun. Typically though, after about a week everything falls out of balance. We might spend a day cleaning and organizing the house followed by a really lazy day where screen time is limitless. Then we’ll have an adventure day but the learning portion I’d planned often falls by the wayside. When I heard about the Summer Fit Activity books, I knew they’d be a huge help!
Summer Fit Activity Books are offered for 9 different age groups from Pre-K through 7-8. They are designed to help combat summer “Brain Drain”. Unlike other books or programs, Summer Fit combines academics, fitness and values in a unique workbook. The daily lessons are just long enough to keep kids from losing their skills without feeling like they are in summer school. Here’s an overview of what you’ll find in each book:
Reading, writing, math, language arts, science and geography. Based on national standards. Written by teachers. Approved by parents.
Fitness log, daily exercises in aerobics and strength. Healthy Eating and Exercise.
Core values and role model activities for the whole family.
You’ll also get website support with downloads, videos, supplemental activities, reading lists and more! I love that these workbooks are more than just busy work. They focus on the whole child — mind, body and spirit.
My youngest daughter loves her Summer Fit book. She actually seeks it out herself and gets to work if she’s feeling a little bored. She likes doing the daily exercise. In the back of the book there are fun suggestions for aerobic exercise and active activities. There’s also a section on nutrition that is a good reminder for all of us!
My oldest has also been working in his Summer Fit Book. Today is only the 2nd day of summer vacation for us so he wasn’t super thrilled at my suggestion to crack open the book already but he found a math skill review section near the beginning of the book and completed the pages right away. He enjoys math so it was a good place for him to jump in. There’s a big difference between the 2-3 book and the 6-7 book in terms of skills but both books cover the same basic topics. I love that the lessons are fairly short. They don’t seem overwhelming but get the kids thinking and brushing up on their skills. It’s easy to incorporate a little learning into their day with the Summer Fit Activities books. There are two pages for each day’s lesson, usually covering at least two topics and a reminder to choose their daily exercise and record it in the fitness log. There’s also an incentive contract calendar to encourage daily completion.
As a mom, these activity books are a great tool. I don’t have to research assignments or do any planning. It’s already done! The books retail for $14.95 each, an affordable price for a whole summer’s worth of learning! You can find out more at www.summerfitlearning.com
