Summer Fit Learning Review & Giveaway

Summer Fit contains grade appropriate, basic skill activities in reading, writing, math and language arts. The daily fitness component is a fun and easy-to-use exercise routine that gets children moving on a daily basis and is designed to help children build healthy exercise habits while away from school. Children choose from Aerobic, Strength and Sport activities using a Fitness Index developed by professional trainers, school coaches and parents. Exercises are reinforced online with videos that show children performing each of the different exercises.Weekly core value activities and exercises are a resource for parents and guardians to use in talking about and teaching good character and values. Each week a different value is introduced and reinforced using real world examples of a person who represents that value.
Summer Fit is the most comprehensive summer workbook available and provides parents with the tools and the motivation to develop the physical and social well being of their child as well as the academic.
Summer Fit includes online games to reinforce basic skills in reading, writing and language arts.

Last year I received a copy of K-1 Summer Fit.  So this year I requested a copy of Summer Fit for 1st – 2nd grade.  My daughter was excited to get this book in the mail as she remembered last years book.  There  are academic activities, physical activities and ideas for teaching children values.

Honestly I’m not very consistent when it comes to keeping my kids reading and doing school work during the summer but I’m going to give it a valiant attempt this summer.  3 of my 5 kids are already out of school and today is the last day for the other 2. Last year we started on the Summer Fit Learning series but got “busy” and didn’t make it all the way through the book.  Hopefully this summer we’ll be more consistent.

I just read this statistic on Summer Fit’s Facebook Page:

Research shows that children who do not read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress, especially at-risk or reluctant readers.

I’m grateful to have a resource to help me keep my daughter learning through the summer.

The Summer Fit website focuses on 3 areas: Mind, Body & Values.  They’ve got great resources including summer reading lists, games, exercises & ways to teach values to your children. You can check it out here:

Here is another great quote I found from Summer Fit:

Parents are and always be a child’s greatest teacher, in all aspects of their lives including the classroom. What an amazing opportunity you have as parents to make a positive impact on the world by teaching your child what it means to be honest, have empathy and to make this world a better place. Unplug this summer and embrace your child’s time away from school as an adventure for both of you.
