Many parents take advantage of summer months to help students maintain skills taught during the school year and to prepare for the next academic year.
If you dread the upcoming year because your child hates social studies or history, here are a few suggestions to increase motivation. Things you can do at home either during the school year or during the summer months.
Attached is a document I created that includes ideas based on brain research. Activities which wouldn’t seem like typical school lessons. For fun summer boredom prevention.
Use the list as your guide to think of ones that would match your style, your child’s preferences, and upcoming history units.
Note: The brain based recommendations pertain to any subject area.
