Summer Slide and BrainQuest



If you are a teacher you are more than aware of the summer slide and how detrimental it can be to incoming students, but one thing I have noticed in working with publishers this summer is that a lot of parents and kids don't even know about what we call the "summer slide." That is worrisome to me. 


One of the absolute BEST and biggest ways to beat the summer slide is through my favorite way of course: 


There's a big statistic right there. The importance of reading and how much students do enjoy it over the summertime... 

BUT...of course, there's always a but.... 

Let's say that reading isn't the only thing you're fearful of "sliding" in, what about math? What if you're like I was and just want to get ahead of the game before you start the next school year???


I don't know about you, but as a child I loved learning (probably why I became a teacher) so much that my mom always made a point to get the Brain Quest questions that came in rectangular flip cards. I used to love to study those and have her ask me. 

When I saw a Summer Brain Quest workbook I was super excited for those who are young students now! Brain Quest makes these for students of all grade levels, and they cover every content area *BOO YAH!* 


I think this is a great way to keep up with your academics as well as finding time to read. This can be something that you do together in car rides when you go on vacation, anytime you're waiting at a doctor's office, if they have a younger brother/sister that they can work with... The possibilities are endless when it comes to finding the time to continue your learning.

  1. What a great post! I am a sixth grade teacher and never thought to send something like this home with my students. I did have a good talk about reading and how I didn't want them to lose all they've worked for, but I am not sure some completely bought it. I am also looking into a brain quest book...for myself! Haha. Thank you for posting and happy summer!
