I spent quite a while this past month searching for a summer packet for the kids. Now before you think I’m crazy, I don’t make them do schoolwork all summer. If you saw my last post, you know I love to fit in lots of fun. But I also hate to think that my kids missed out on great learning opportunities and fell behind just because I decided to let them completely veg out over the summer. Must be the importance of education that my grandma ingrained in my head.
So finally I came across some great packets that I thought would do the job. I hate spending money, but I don’t have the patience to make my own worksheets (or the knowledge for that matter!), and I worry that the workbooks available at the store cover the common core. What better way to know than to get it from a teacher. So we decided to invest. And $6-$7 per packet really isn’t bad for keeping your child up-to-par for three months.
Here are my favorites. I hope you like them as much as I do!
