Soleil Moon Frye Shares Tips for Avoiding the #SummerSlide

by Lolli

Lolli here…

Summer is officially here (or will be very soon) for most of us, and as wonderful as it is to let the kids spend all day playing outside, I am always concerned that the summer sun is going to suck everything that they’ve worked so hard to learn throughout the school year. Target’s Mom Ambassador Soleil Moon Frye (aka the former Punky Brewster) wants to make sure kids avoid the dreaded “Summer Slide.”

Soleil Moon Frye

As a child growing up in the 80s, I remember Soleil from the Punky Brewster series as well as one of my kids’ favorite shows, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, where she played Roxie King.

I was excited to have the chance to chat with Soleil the other day about the “Summer Slide.” We discussed ways to keep kids engaged in learning throughout the long break, her experiences with her own daughters and Target’s plans to help families keep the “Summer Slide” at bay.

I was just thrilled that she started off by calling me her hero. It totally made my day.

What are some of YOUR tips for keeping the kids engaged in learning activities throughout the summer months?

Our kids love to read. They also have “homework” that they have to finish each week during the summer … a short poem to write, math races to complete, little things that don’t take much time but keep them thinking!

We are on a year-round school schedule so we are lucky enough that they don’t have a long summer of no school. But my kids love to read and visit educational websites (starfall.com is a great one for preschool/kindergarten kids!)

My son is starting kindergarten this year, so we haven’t yet experienced this – and we read at bedtime all year right now. But my friends with older children have had the kids read books and write book reports throughout the summer. I think it’s a decent idea.

22 Linda Stewart June 13, 2012 at 10:57 am

We keep our ‘home’ routine the same year round. The boys go to school/pre-school/daycare during the day. When we get home the oldest has his writing time and the younger two have book time. Then it’s outside to play until dinner. After dinner it’s baths, teeth, 30 minutes educational TV, story time, and bedtime. We keep this routine straight through the summer and it makes the transition back to the regular school season so much easier and they remember what they’ve learned.

Reading themes and challenges. All family members choose a book in a loose theme (Pirates, Space, Animals) and get together once a day (week) to discuss what they like (or dislike) about the stories. Find common denominators (dialogue, atmosphere, geography). Challenge the kids to find two books they’ll like even when they are older.

Go to the library often. Sit in there and read with them. Read along with whatever they are reading and mention the stories while out doing other things.

Trips to the library. Even if the kids only check out a comic, or a DVD, or look at magazines, they’re in the library. Once they’re used to that, then have them read something before they get the next DVD, whether it be a magazine, or a comic, or yes, a book.

Of course, this only works if TV isn’t a babysitter at your house. It’s a reward, not a pasttime.

having them help with shopping- they have to help with money and sums.

I have a 14 year old son and a 12 year old nephew that spends most summer days at my house. Of course video games could consume every waking moment if I allowed it. And while I do give them their play time, I try to get them involved in the real world, too. Board games such as Scategories are a great way to engage other parts of their brains, as well as crossword puzzles. We also enjoy Geocaching, which gets us all off our bumbs and out into nature.

I take some of the school papers my daughter did and erase the answers. I then copy them and make them into a booklet. Each day they do a few of them to help her renumber what she did this year and be more prepared for the next year.

Trips to do fun things. I also let them help me cook more often. They get to practice math skills and reading skills that way! They love spending more time helping me make food. Not to mention they eat more of it that way. Win-Win.
