Summer Bridge Activities(TM): Bridging Grades Prekindergarten to Kindergarten prepares your rising kindergartner for a successful school year. The activities in this book are designed to review the skills that your child mastered in prekindergarten, preview the skills that he or she will learn in kindergarten, and help prevent summer learning loss. No matter how wonderful your child’s classroom experiences are, your involvement outside of the classroom is crucial to his or her academic success. Together with Summer Bridge Activities, you can fill the summer months with learning experiences that will deepen and enrich your child’s knowledge and prepare your child for the upcoming school year.

A little simple in the beginning if your child is in preschool already, but overall good and they can complete lots of pages in one sitting.
Perfect. Challenging, but not over the top. Keeps the brain active, and allows that much needed one on one parent interaction during the summer. AND, my daughter finds the activities fun- that is the best part! I love the vocab terms before each section- I never thought about introducing terms such as 'trace', 'count', and 'color'. How wonderful for her to read her own directions in kindergarten!
