How about-Have them enjoy summer. After all they are only kids.That is what I did when I was their age and I am sure you did too.Don't worry, they will not forget anything important and if they do forget something it is probably not worth remembering

It depends on the child, their interest and what they may need to work on. Parents should be able to access what's best for their child to work on over the summer - not too much, so they will still be excited about going back to school in the fall.

I agree that kids should keep up their reading, writing and math skills during the summer. "Homework" is a terrible idea! Kids can do fun home and community activities that incorporate those skills learned prior to the summer break!

do projects with your kids that allow them to continue to use all their skills for school. kids love to read i know my daughter does and going to the libary is a great past time.

Turn off the tv, video games. Exposure to the great outdoors. Whether it is traveling or just in the back yard. Kids need to reacquaint themselves with playing and exploring. Most importantly P-L-A-Y (a fleeting objective in our society.)

I agree with many of these replies. This summer I'm also going to teach my kids to type. This hunt and peck stuff is nuts!

Road Trips! Plan them with a theme in mind: animals, mountains, family history, etc. Kids learn geography, math (calculating change due from cash purchases, comparing gas prices, tracking daily expenses) plus the happy memories created. Make it fun!

leaning the joys of summer vacation after 10 months of learning testing and homework. let them go out and explore the world on there own (ie getting a job, giving them more responsibillities, ect...) take them on vacation. thats good too.

Earobics vs. Lindamood-Bell: Each has several programs. The focus & scope of the offerings in both is different. Questions on any one offering compared with any other can be answered. Otherwise, it's like comparing an SUV and ATV - meaningless.
