Keep the Kids’ Minds Sharp with Summer Brain Quest

My kids absolutely love these Brain Quest workbooks because they are structured like a game, so it doesn't FEEL like schoolwork

Each summer, my kids want to play. They want to play, party, sleep, and throw all their cares away. One, and their only, care is school. They don’t want to know anything about it! They are off, the weather is hot and the days are long. That means pure enjoyment! While I somewhat agree, it’s also nice to do just a little bit to keep their mind sharp and not going over 2 months without any work!! Parents and teachers are forever on a mission to prevent “summer slide,” (where most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math, and many also lose reading achievement, during the summer). ‘

I was super duper excited, and shockingly so were the kids, to come across the very awesome SUMMER BRAIN QUEST!!! Brain Quest has joined the fight against the slide with workbooks targeting each summer between kindergarten and 6th grade. These books are a super effective new tool for parents, homeschoolers, tutors, and teachers alike. It’s a game changer and a lifesaver for the Sweeney household!!!

Summer Brain Quest Workbooks

SUMMER BRAIN QUEST offers a one-of-a-kind learning experience that delivers personalized learning for every type of kid.

SUMMER BRAIN QUEST offers a one-of-a-kind learning experience that delivers personalized learning for every type of kid. Personalized learning is an educational method where exercises are tailored to each child’s strengths, needs and interests, ensuring they have a say in how they learn with getting enough practice of the fundamentals.

My kids absolutely love these books because they are structured like a game, so it doesn’t FEEL like schoolwork. Each book includes a pull-out map that guides kids on a learning quest. They fill in their route on the map by earning stickers for completing workbook pages as well as pursuing outdoor activities. The map offers a choice of routes, allowing kids to customize their learning path and pursue what excites them most (extra math problems? more hands-on science?), and also encouraging them to jump around within the book to follow their curiosity. This is a win, plain and simple.

Each SUMMER BRAIN QUEST workbook has been created in consultation with an award-winning teacher specializing in that grade and it always aligned to Common Core State Standards, Next Generation State Standards, and state social studies standards. Don’t worry, these guys did their homework!!!

    I need to get Brain Quest for my youngest over the summer. She is super smart, but even she loses some of what she learned over the summer.

    I think these Brain Quest books are a great idea. It would make the kids get ready for the next school year. The activities in these book will make it more fun and the kids would not feel like they are back in school during the summer.
