Do you keep your kids busy with school while off for the holidays?

My kids are off for Thanksgiving vacation and I really need to keep them on top of their schooling. Any suggestions!

  • I have to do this with my son, not so much formy daughter since she is in kindergarten.
    He has a study book that is always in their bookbag so I make him do at least an hour of review a day or i pull somehting off of the internet to work on like a math website ot reading website.

  • I have store bought workbooks that I work with my 7yr old in 1st grade when there is a long vacation or sometimes over the weekend. At least 2pages a day.

  • No that's why it's vacation. Well my son is doing well in school that's why I let him relax. When I was growing up my mom as well let us enjoy the vacation. Summer I must admit I do have him practice some things. He's in 1st grade by the way.

  • Workbooks are great, you can get some good ones at the dollar store. There are also alot of websites that you can use to print out work sheets.
