Even small breaks, like winter holiday break, contribute to the skill loss elementary students can experience while away from school. Brain Freeze! packets, which you can download NOW for FREE, from ThinkStretch Summer Learning Program are designed to prevent kids’ reading, writing and math skills from freezing up during the 10 day winter break.
Learning loss research indicates that students can forget the skills they learn in school over breaks. Brain Freeze! is a fun way for kids to enjoy winter break and keep their school habits at the same time. In the packets, kids help the character Brain try not to freeze up over the Professor’s winter break. Each grade-specific packet contains:
- snowman reading log
- math facts for quick review
- winter writing activity
- and bonus activities for winter science and art fun!
The packet culminates with a back-to-school Snowflake Flurry! Teachers can post photos of the crazy and creative snowflakes kids design to the ThinkStretch’s Facebook page for a chance to win prizes up to $150! See the crazy and fun snowmen that were created by students in last year’s Snowman Parade on our Facebook page.
When your children are on winter break, give them something fun that will help them maintain their school skills. ThinkStretch’s Brain Freeze! packet is free for your classroom. You can download the workbook now.
