It is almost Summertime and I wanted to share with you this idea that I posted last year. Inside of the basket I placed Workbooks and Flashcards that I picked up at the Dollar Tree, all his reading logs, his leaspter and two great activity card sets that I got from Usborne Books at our school book fair.
Monday-Friday he spends 1 hour a day doing an activity or two and reading. It is his “quiet time” and a great time for learning. Last summer he was SO excited about his special basket that he actually asked to do it each day. The leapster can only be played ONE day a week to limit additional screen time. You can read my post here on how we limit screen time at our house.
By simply creating the Summer Learning Basket and placing it in our living room we don’t “forget” to do it and he is excited about it because it is NEW to him and just for HIM he is even more excited! This summer I am removing the leapster and replacing it with a fun electronic educational math game I picked up.
