Ready, Set, It's Summer!

With summer upon us, it's time to stop by The Learning Bug for some quick and fun learning activities to help your child retain their knowledge from school and get a head start for the coming year.

Here are four of our favorite summer learning products:
Our Flash Card Zone has everything you need for quick drills and introducing new concepts.  For more ways to use your flash cards see these previous blog posts- Flash Card Games Part 1, Flash Card Games Part 2, Flash Card Games Part 3.


Our That's Baloney! games are perfect for at home or on the go.  These cross-curricular games are packed with 500 grade-level questions.  
  • Players spin to see which category their challenge will come from:  Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies or Mystery Meat.
  • Players must read the statement in the corresponding category on their card and determine whether it is true or baloney (false)
  • Points are given for correct answers
  • Each game includes 200 4 1/4 diameter cards, spinner, and directions
  • An answer sheet with explanations of false answers is included 


Summer Bridge Activities books build confidence and self-esteem with activities that prepare students for the next grade.  Children complete two pages each day to retain knowledge from the previous grade and get a jump start on the coming grade. 


Our son will be entering fifth grade this coming year.  To give him a head start on learning his states and capitals we're using these awesome States & Capitals flash cards.  These cards are a great resource for learning about each state.

Come on by and let us help you find what will help your child succeed!
