    t's a well-known fact that during their summer vacation children lose some of what they learned at school. So I was thrilled to once again get a copy of Summer Fit—a summer workbook with daily activities and exercises for a 10-week program—for my son who is currently in second grade. When I showed it to him, he groaned. I understood why. He was now at the end of the school year, deep into projects and exams, and was waiting for the day when he could burst out of the school doors for the last tim t's a well-known fact that during their summer vacation children lose some of what they learned at school. So I was thrilled to once again get a copy of Summer Fit—a summer workbook with daily activities and exercises for a 10-week program—for my son who is currently in second grade. When I showed it to him, he groaned. I understood why. He was now at the end of the school year, deep into projects and exams, and was waiting for the day when he could burst out of the school doors for the last time until next September. But after a week or two of frolicking in the pool and enjoying the lazy, hot summer days, he will get antsy and will go looking for his workbooks, markers and books. This is when Summer Fit will come in handy. Although jam-packed with activities that cover academics, fitness, and core values, it's not overwhelming for the child to do. One leisure hour per day (2 pages) covers the material in a fun way. I also appreciate this workbook because my son goes to an all French school where they only cover one hour of English a week, so this will give him a chance to review school material in English. Each week of the program begins with an incentive contract page where the child can check off his work as he does it during the week. He can write his incentive for completing the work, for example, getting a special treat. Most kids find it fun to be rewarded for accomplishing their work. The workbook also covers some info on nutrition, bike safety, and includes a fitness index with a list and explanation of the many exercises to be done. I'm going to encourage my kids by doing some of these together with them and getting more fit too! The material is based on US National Standards, however, there is additional Canadian-specific content available on their website, www.summerfitlearning.com, which also contains educational games, online book report templates and other information from summer learning partners. I downloaded the list of fun activities and reading list. On the back cover of the book, it stated that trivia apps are available but I did not see any on the site. I will have to contact the publisher and ask about this. My kids have iPods and love apps! Also, there is no link on the website for online ordering. It would be easier for parents if this could be included. The last page is a Certificate of Congratulations to be filled out with the child's name and given as he completes the Summer Fit program. Overall, Summer Fit is a great tool for parents to keep their kids motivated and active during the summer and prepared to tackle a new year of school in the Fall.

Each day offers a simple and fun routine that reinforces skills not only in reading, math, language arts, and physical fitness plus a weekly core value, but basic history and geography as well. I have never come across a workbook that incorporates reading, writing, math with fitness and nutrition. The daily fitness program consists of 2 Aerobic days, 2 Strength days and 1 Sport day. The books are appropriate for each grade level, focusing on basics that will keep students involved with different activities and keep them ahead when school starts. If you are looking for something to keep your child active this summer, then SUMMER FIT would be something to consider. Summer Fit is the exercise book for your child’s brain and body while they are away from school. The activities are interesting, fun and educational. Like the book says, “prepare children mentally, physically and socially for the grade ahead!” Summer Fit is the most comprehensive summer workbook and as a former teacher I highly recommend them. Ages: 5 and up FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

    Studies have shown that students test lower at the end of summer than at the beginning. They lose quite a bit of what they've learned though out the school year. Students also gain a considerable amount of weight through out the summer due to inactivity and poor eating habits. So several teachers have come up with a book that transitions the students into the next grade with fun and educational activities. The book has the subjects of math, reading, writing, language arts, fitness, nutrition, a Studies have shown that students test lower at the end of summer than at the beginning.

The book has the subjects of math, reading, writing, language arts, fitness, nutrition, and values. But in reading through the book I also noticed bits of history as well. The worksheets are colorful and can be accomplished quickly. I was really impressed with the concept, layout, and educational level. My son is working though the book and is really enjoying it. The activities appear to be grade appropriate. Definitely a book that I would recommend getting for your child to complete over the summer. I received this book free of charge from Direct Contact in exchange for my honest review.
