Summer Bridge Workbooks Help to Bridge the Academic Gap Until Kids Start School in the Fall - Review and Giveaway

1:12 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Summer is finally here! Benji graduated preschool last Friday and Oscar's last day of school was yesterday. Benji is very excited to finally be considered a kindergartner and Oscar thinks that he is one cool kid on his way to the second grade. I am so proud of both them and the gains that they have made this last school year. Each of them faces unique academic challenges and they have both grown so much as individuals. That being said, I want them to keep their skills polished throughout the summer so that they will be more than ready in the fall to resume their education.

We learned about the Summer Bridge Activities books from the elementary school that both the boys attend. Oscar was in a special needs program for help with his speech and daily living goals as a preschooler and the teachers in that program boasted that the Summer Bridge Activities work books were the best books for helping kids stay on course academically in the summer.


For the past two summers Oscar has been using the Summer Bridge Activities books in order to refresh his memory on what he learned the previous school year and start working on concepts that will be introduced to him in the upcoming year. Now that Benji will be entering kindergarten in the fall he too will be working on the skills and concepts that he learned in preschool and getting that jump start for kindergarten.

When I found out that I was going to be doing a review for Summer Bridge Activities books I was ecstatic! The Summer Bridge Activities books are very well rounded and cover several areas of development not only mental but physical. These award winning work books include 12 weeks worth of activities that focus on:

  • Reading Skills
  • Math Skills
  • Fine-Motor Skills
  • Easy Science Experiments
  • Outdoor Activities
  • Handwriting
  • Shapes and Colors
  • Visual Discrimination
  • Character Development
  • Fitness Activities

Oscar's book also includes a summer reading list suggestion since he now knows how to read. I love that they have done the work for me and all I need to do is buy the books or check them out at the library.

My mom loves spending time with the boys and she is a wonderful teacher to them. She has a way of explaining things to them and they listen very carefully to what she has to say. They love working on their work books with grandma and she loves helping them. It is a huge bonding activity that they go through each summer. It is time that all of them look forward to spending with each other. Here is my mom working with the boys on their new Summer Bridges Activities books:
