If you want to keep the kids learning over the summer – take advantage of these FREE Summer Math & Reading Programs for Kids! I love using these to balance their 30 minutes of video-game time with 30 minutes of “learning game” time.
FREE Summer Math Program – TenMarks
TenMarks is offering their summer math program FREE this year (reg $24.95). It’s customized to your child’s grade level and you can register more than one child. You can also create incentives to motivate them to reach certain goals!
Here’s How It Works:
1. Kids read any eight (8) books of their own choosing.
2. Kids write about their favorite part using the Summer Reading Journal.
3. Children bring their completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 20th & September 2nd, 2014.
4. They’ll get a coupon for a FREE book! They choose from a list of exceptional paperback titles.*
As for an online reading program – help your kids keep up by signing up for a FREE 2-Week Trial of Reading Eggs – and give your kids a fun learning experience this summer! Kasey & I have both used Reading Eggs with our kids, and I’ll tell you, they genuinely LOVE it.
And of course, your local library is a great place to check out a summer reading program. They often have a party at the end of the summer, and give away goody bags with coupons for local restaurants and more!
