Learn and practice affixes
Children of all the grades can improve their reading and spelling skills better by learning more about affixes. Each sentence has a prefix and a suffix added to a base word. Find the list of affixes and the meaning from the dictionary and practice. Make it like a daily regime game for yourself. This way you learn more vocabulary words.
Mental math skills
It doesn’t sound fun at all, but working on just three to four math problems a day, can prevent a student’s mathematical skill getting all rusty. Make it as a challenge to yourself. Take it as an everyday ‘to-do’ and mark each day with success. Here, parents can also help the kids with their way to the math workbook.
Improve your reading and writing skills
Reading and creative writing is one of the skills which help everyone in their lives. To help yourself understand what are you reading, consider getting yourself a comprehension workbook. Work for several minutes daily. This will help you develop a fact retaining and inference-making skills. Suggest yourself a topic to write, every day. A paragraph of about 100-200 words challenge. This will not only help you to express better but also improve your writing skills. Most importantly, it will encourage you to review your grammatical skills and make you much better.
Focus on other specific skills
It is essential to work on the subjects you have most trouble in learning. Make sure you learn and practice the areas you find it difficult to understand. Summer is an ideal time, every day if you put 15-30 minutes for learning the areas of difficulty, it will be a great help.
