We are so excited to announce the beginning of our Summer Learning Series! This year we hope to bring you even more resources to keep the Summer days and weeks enjoyable for you and your children. If you would like to check out last year’s lessons you can go HERE.
We are all trying to figure out the best way to keep our little ones entertained and continue learning at the same time, while we push through the weeks of Summer. We are looking forward to lazy days, playing in the water, sleeping in and not having to get all the kids up and ready in the morning. We also realize that kids get bored, which leads to whining, fighting, and in many cases leads to us losing our minds!
This year we are also partnering with KBYU and PBS to offer an even more interactive resource, which will enable you to access the most affordable preschool through your computer/tablet, with episodes that reinforce the topic of the week. After you watch some fun ideas online, you can encourage your kids to turn OFF the electronics and experience these things together. KBYU emphasized over and over again, how important is was to them that their channel is used as a tool to open our minds and explore new ways to engage in our surroundings – especially over the summer. It’s not a substitute for adventure in the great outdoors – but a catalyst for creativity and making memories!
As we introduce each week’s theme, we will also explain how the Five Protective Factors – to Strengthen Families – fits into each lesson. We feel strongly that as we learn and grow with our children, we are also creating a bond that will get us through life, together. We can’t think of a better way to spend the summer! So join us in creating memories, spending time with loved ones – while strengthening relationships!
