Practice Academic Skills While Traveling – Math with KIDS

Math Skills – How to review math skills while traveling with KIDS

Whether you are traveling during the school year or on school holiday, keeping the skills up is a great idea! It keeps kids engaged and keeps the wheels in those little brains turning! Keeping skills fresh will also make coming back to school easy and the transition smooth. I promise every teacher in the whole world wishes every kiddo did some practice over holidays. Then, the first few weeks of school wouldn’t have to be wasted on review. You CAN practice academic skills while traveling.

Flexing those math muscles can also be fun! Well, as fun as math can be, right? 😉

Practice Academic Skills While Traveling – Talk to the Teacher

Be sure to share what you are doing for skills practice with your child’s teacher. Sometimes they will let you do this instead of the paper worksheets the child missed while on vacation.

Teachers want to be your partner in your child’s learning and they value that not all learning takes place in the classroom. Work with your child’s teacher on how to keep learning going at home AND while traveling.

 

Happy and Educational Travels,

Natalie, The Educational Tourist
