4 Ways To Avoid The Summer Brain Drain!

Summer is here and who doesn’t love summer? Right. Unfortunately, a long summer break can cause a regression in academic proficiency. Here are 4 quick, easy, and inexpensive ideas that will help prevent the summer brain drain.

1. Read every day.
Read as much and as often as you can. Take advantage of teachable moments. Recipes, a grocery list, and the back of a cereal box count as reading time.
2. Play games.
Play memory, board, and card games, or make up your own. Uno, Simon Says, Connect 4, and Monopoly (to name a few) build a plethora of important cognitive and learning skills and are fun to play.
3. Explore the outdoors.
Taking day trips, growing a vegetable garden, or hosting a lemonade stand are great experiential activities that can provide ample opportunities for learning.
4. Get crafty.
Arts and crafts projects do not have to be elaborate. With some imagination and a few supplies your child can create cards, collages, origami, and so much more.

These educational activities can be easily integrated into your summer fun. Now your child can enjoy the summer while staying mentally limber and ready for school in the fall.

For more ideas on ways to keep the learning process going throughout the summer so your child doesn’t fall behind, contact Andrea at Magnolia Learning Services at 979-236-9366.

What?? Huh???
Does this sound like your child?

Auditory processing engages a complex set of skills to temporarily hold, sequence, and process what is heard. The ability to process auditory information accurately and efficiently is essential for learning and social interactions. Some children who have difficulty with auditory processing have normal hearing, average to above average intelligence, yet struggle with reading. Children with auditory processing weaknesses may:
Have speech issues from a young age.
Regularly misinterpret what is being said.
Seem distracted or appear to daydream.
Have problems distinguishing between similar sounds.
Seem forgetful.
Have difficulty following auditory directions.
Often say “huh” or “what”.

Early identification and effective strategies can help minimize the impact APW can have on your child’s learning. If you would like more information, please contact me at Magnolia Learning Services, LLC.
