Summer Fit Learning Series and a Giveaway

About the series: We know from more than 100 years of research that summer learning loss is a reality. Some students can lose large pieces of their yearly academic gains if they do not continue to practice and review. We believe that parents and caregivers are the critical piece in combating the summer slide and summer weight gain. Keeping children busy, active and learning at home this summer is key to academic success in the upcoming school year.

Summer Fit Activity Books are based on Common Core standards and include daily activities in math, reading, writing, language arts and science. However, Summer Fit moves summer learning beyond academics to also prepare children physically and socially for the grade ahead. Daily fitness exercises are designed to jump start the recommended 60 minutes of active play a day that children need to grow up healthy. Role models from throughout history including Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Harriet Tubman help reinforce core values such as honesty, respect and trustworthiness on a week-to-week basis.

Summer Fit is a great resource to use during the critical months of summer to prepare children for the grade ahead. Additional product information and promotional flyers are available on their website. You can also check out their youtube video

My review: I was way excited when I got an offer to review this book. I usually grab one of these type of books for our youngest daughter, who will be going into third grade this year. I have never seen this specific series before, but there are some things that I really love about it. I love that it has sections on values, fitness, good nutrition and even places for the kids to write as kind of a journal. This book is organized by weeks, there's an exercise for each day as well as a page to learn from, whether it's math, science, literature, history...whatever. This is really an excellent resource for kids and parents alike!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The best part is that one of my lucky readers can win a copy of their choice, enter on the rafflecopter form.
