5 Ways to Keep Your Child Learning During Winter Break

Two weeks doesn’t seem like a long time to be out of school but it can take quite a toll on your child’s learning. 

Reading every day is a simple way to keep what kids have learned fresh in their minds.

Here are a few simple ways you can support your child’s learning while they are on break this holiday season.

  1. Ask your child’s teacher for worksheets or handouts that your child can work on over the holidays.  It’s amazing how much just half an hour a day can help.
  2. Read every day.  Ask your child to read out loud to you or to their siblings.
  3. Work on vocabulary.  You can get those magnetic words for the refrigerator and quiz them on spelling and definition or get index cards and quiz them that way.
  4. Take a trip to a local museum and ask your child questions about what they learned.
  5. Give your child a book as a gift instead of a toy.
