So sitting with her to watch something educational on purpose is met with a blank stare. There’s still time for my six-year-old though!
So I choose my battles.
We have been working hard around here to keep school the focus, as much as^^^^ some people^^^^^aren’t completely down with that.
This is what my dining room table has looked like since June 6th:
A mini classroom.
Designed to help my six-year-old keep school in her cute little brain all summer.
Because we need a little push around here and this seems to be a good tool to do that.
And the 14-year-old has occasionally helped by being the “teacher” here and there so she is keeping school in her cute little brain as well.
In between Pretty Little Liar episodes.
Since I am a huge supporter of working to keep the “summer slide” at a minimum around here, I love that Netflix offers television options to help the kids climb out of the abysmal learning pit that can be Summer.
For the bigger kids there are titles like:
Lewis and Clark: The Journey Out West
Walking With Dinosaurs
When We Left Earth: The Nasa Missions
Here is a list of documentaries that your kids might like to watch this summer and each one has an age-appropriate next to the title to help you decide which one would be best for your child.
I love documentaries, so does my 14-year-old.
We watched Serving Life at the beginning of summer together as well as The Waiting Room.
Your little ones might like these titles:
The Great Mouse Detective
LeapFrog: Math Adventures to the Moon
Turtle: The Incredible Journey
My youngest has always LOVED the Busytown gang so will check it out and for sure we are watching the Leap Frog Math Adventures because MATH.
How are you keeping the slide from getting too slippery in your home this summer?
