Avoiding the Winter Break Slide

We all remember how much fun winter break was- sleeping in, playing in the snow, spending hours with TV and video games while the parents were at work. While a bit of play over the break is fine, it is important to not overdo it. Here are a few tips and activities to help you balance your child's play and school work over the winter break.

Reading is Learning

The best hobby to instill in your child is reading. Take every opportunity you have to spend time reading with your child, even if they are too big to cuddle. Make reading a family pastime by listening to your favorite actors reading audiobooks. Getting your child interested in reading on her own starts with reading as a family.

Library Visit

Take your children to the library, get them library cards, and have them pick out some books to read over the break. Make sure there is a solid combination of fiction and non-fiction reading. For non-fiction, there is a wealth of possibilities to interest your child, from science to biographies of your child's favorite historical figures. As your child finishes a book, have her give the family a book report on it.

Keep a Routine

Get some cheap activity guides and workbooks from a discount store. They will give your child something to do related to their school activities every day. Make a calendar with a special learning activity each day that your children can mark off as they complete.
