Summer Fit 2-3
Kelly Terrill & Portia Marin
Studies have shown that students test lower at the end of summer than at the beginning. They lose quite a bit of what they've learned though out the school year. Students also gain a considerable amount of weight through out the summer due to inactivity and poor eating habits. So several teachers have come up with a book that transitions the students into the next grade with fun and educational activities. The book has the subjects of math, reading, writing, language arts, fitness, nutrition, and values. But in reading through the book I also noticed bits of history as well. The worksheets are colorful and can be accomplished quickly. I was really impressed with the concept, layout, and educational level. My son is working though the book and is really enjoying it. The activities appear to be grade appropriate. Definitely a book that I would recommend getting for your child to complete over the summer.
I received this book free of charge from Direct Contact in exchange for my honest review.
