Today Show- Summer Slide

I did the Today Show this morning to discuss what to do to avoid the slide of school skills over the summer. To what the piece, visit http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/25492738#25492738. It was a lively discussion with psychologist Ruth Peters and Matt Lauer.

Are there things that you do with your kids that you find helpful?

    that was a great piece- i guess the sylvan commercial was right about “losing” math over the summer- i thought it was just slick marketing!! super suggestions…

    Yes–the slide is real. I should point out that I am not in any way associated with the Sylvan learning center. Dr. Peters has consulted for them but my recommendations were strictly from the toyportfolio universe.

    your tips were really good– i am always eager to find new items that make math fun.
    my girls are good students, but all three are missing the math gene!
