Even though it's summer, I don't want the kids to stop learning things. I have long been a fan of summer reading programs and other activities that keep children focused on learning things instead of sitting on the couch playing video games all summer long. We are still making weekly trips to the library and we have the kids read for 30 minutes each day. During the school year, they make one page journal entries daily and we are continuing this during the summer so that their writing skills continue to improve.
To make sure they are retaining what they read and understanding the story, we're also using some reading comprehension worksheets from Scholastic. The cause and effect worksheet is simple, but perfect for helping young readers connect events in a story. Scholastic Printables provides access to over 15,000 worksheets and resources for students from Pre-K to 8th grade. They're great for homeschoolers and teachers, but even if you don't homeschool or teach in a traditional classroom, you can print these worksheets to use with your kids at home. They can be used to complement your child's classroom education.
I love that the Scholastic worksheets are different from what my kids are used to. These multiplication worksheets are fun for the kids and they like solving the puzzles. Scholastic also offers worksheets in other subjects, such as science, social studies, and language. Whatever your topic, you're sure to find a worksheet that will enhance your child's learning. But just in case you don't, the site also offers a "Make Your Own" feature to create your own puzzles, games, and flash cards in 3 easy steps.
Individual plans start at $8.99/monthly, but the annual plan is just $39.99, so it's the better value. Under each category, there are a few free worksheets to try!
