School is officially out for the summer and my eight year old daughter could not be more excited about that! However, as a parent I worry about how I can keep my daughter actively learning during this time away from school. Since she will be entering the third grade in the fall, it only makes sense to provide her with third grade learning material so that she will enter the school year prepared. I was so delighted when I discovered that Lakeshore Learning offers a collection of games that help your child get ready for the upcoming school year. The Are You Ready? games are available for grades k-5 and provide a fun and engaging learning approach. We had the opportunity to review the Are You Ready for 3rd Grade? Game Show and I was immediately pleased to see how excited my daughter was to start learning.
With 240 game cards you can bet that the fun and learning will last all summer long. What I love most about this game is that it is more than just sitting there and answering questions. The questions encourage your child to get out a pen and paper and solve problems on their own. Many of the problems that my daughter had to solve were similar to homework assignments she brought home throughout the school year. However, the problems are a bit more advance and provides that challenge she needs to prepare for the following school year. I have a sheet to record her progress and when the game is over, I can visit the Lakeshore Learning website to print out work sheets that focus on areas that she had difficulties with. The resources for this game are just fantastic and really helps to save me from the time and hassle of finding those learning worksheets. This is undoubtedly a must have product for the summer, something every child could certainly benefit from. My daughter really enjoys when we make learning fun and this game provides just that. So if you are looking for a fun and entertaining, yet challenging way to prepare your child for the upcoming school year, I highly recommend you check out the Are You Ready? games today!
