At the beginning of the summer, I wrote an article for WDIV / clickondetroit dot com about how to avoid the "academic summer slide." Now that we're in August, it's time to start thinking about addressing the "summer brain drain."
WDIV contacted me to do the segment with Dr. Frank McGeorge to discuss strategies to repair the "summer brain drain". Dr. Frank McGeorge highlights several methods for how to incorporate healthy, educational activities with your children, without them even knowing it. I sat down with Dr. Frank McGeorge to also chat about ways I try to sneak in educational activities with my children.
I enjoyed and appreciate Dr. Frank McGeorge's tips. To see them for yourself, watch the video below.
Ideally, elementary school-aged children would have been dedicating one hour each day during the summer for math, reading and writing activities. This would avoid the academic summer slide. However, we all know how the summer can slip away from us and we need to get our kids ready for back to school.
