So if you have a school age child at home for the summer, I’m sure you have realized that they have a new need to stay busy and productive. My kindergarten son is now home all day every day, and it was immediately apparent to me that we needed to keep his reading, writing, and math skills in practice. We use my younger daughter’s daily nap time as quiet time for my almost first grade son to do what we call “Summer Learning Stations” . We set up seven different stimulating and appealing stations for my little school going boy so he could practice all of the skills that he learned at school last year. He adores this quiet time of day when he can get his “work” done , and I can get some work done at the same time too.
