Have you been trying to figure out the best way to prepare your child for grade five without overwhelming them? And still, allowing them to have fun all summer long? Cramming curriculum into each day during the summer might prevent summer learning loss, but it also might overwhelm your child. So, what’s the solution? Should you fill up their days with learning and homeschool curriculum, or should you let them have fun all summer and ignore books and learning?
Prepare your child for grade five while avoiding summer learning loss.
The first step is to let go of all that stress and worry. As parents, we can get distracted by all these worries about trying to ensure our children are doing their best and getting all the opportunities in life that they deserve. There’s this constant worry that we aren’t doing enough, causing our children to struggle. This is especially true when we think of the impacts of pandemic learning on our children’s education.
Which makes our goal to avoid summer learning loss so much more important. Bouncing between our attempts at fixing pandemic learning loss and trying to prevent summer learning loss can be an exhausting endeavour. Especially when we see statistics about summer learning loss, like that 2.6 months of math skills, two months of reading skills and one month of overall learning are lost for most children each summer.
So what can you do to help your child catch up on all the learning they have lost? While also aiming to stay on track and not lose even more learning skills during the summer?
General learning skills like math, reading and writing are essential for your child to practice to develop correctly continually; this is especially true during the summer.
Simplify learning; that’s the best way to prepare your child for grade five.
You must avoid overthinking your child’s summer learning, as we know that overthinking adds more stress than good. The assumption that you must have some elaborate plan to be able to prepare your child for grade five is false. It will only lead to you and your child feeling exhausted and never feeling like you’ve done enough.
