Avoiding the Winter Break Slide

We all remember how much fun winter break was- sleeping in, playing in the snow, spending hours with TV and video games while the parents were at work. While a bit of play over the break is fine, it is important to not overdo it. Here are a few tips and activities to help you balance your child's play and school work over the winter break.

Keep a Routine

Get some cheap activity guides and workbooks from a discount store. They will give your child something to do related to their school activities every day. Make a calendar with a special learning activity each day that your children can mark off as they complete.

Turn Errands into Learning Opportunities

There is a chance to teach your child something new at every turn. When you go to the store, ask your child to estimate what the bill will be, and how much change you should receive when you pay. If she gets it right, let her keep the change. Cook with her and explain the role of each ingredient in the recipe. The holidays are an opportune time for your child to learn about the family history, and the parts family members played in famous historical events. Teach your child at every opportunity.

Continuous Learning

It is important for children to continue learning over the break. Precisely because they are not in school means that they are likely to lose knowledge they have gained. Kids need breaks to let their brains rest and recharge, but too much can be detrimental. By making learning fun, you will keep your children engaged both inside and outside of school.
