June 24, 2014 // Franchising.com // Toronto, ON – According to the National Summer Learning Association, kids lose as much as two to three months of math and reading skills over the summer. When the school year ends, many students are occupied during the long summer months with day camps, swimming, play dates and vacation. Then once summer ends and the students go back to school, they realize they don't remember much of what they learned the previous year. In fact, without summer learning, students can lose 20-30 percent of their math, reading and language skills. This phenomenon is known as the "summer slide."
"It's unfortunate that children's hard-earned skills they learned over the school year can easily be lost over the summer," said Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor. "Three months without any academic challenge will dull anyone's brain, thus it's important to keep your children on their toes this summer. This doesn't mean that you have to use tedious school books and flash cards to get the job done. You can easily disguise curriculum into fun learning activities for children instead."
To educate parents on interactive ways to keep their children educated over the summer Tutor Doctor, a leading one-on-one "at home" tutoring franchise, offers the following brain-strengthening activities that are fun and don't feel like work.
