With the kids out of school, topics of conversation have moved to keeping their minds occupied during the summer holidays. Many people enroll their children in a reading program at their local library to keep the kids’ minds working and learning, or work at home with workbooks and computer programs much like homeschoolers do during the year. I find that the reading program at our local library works great for my kids. With small incentives every week, and large prizes to be entered in to win, they are filling up their reading logs faster than I can keep track! Since my kids love school, it is not unheard of for them to request math worksheets to be made up so that they can work on problems while we are driving in the car or at Church.
Those parents that have children entering pre-school or kindergarten often try and “work ahead” with their children by encouraging learning programs.

Ruth Rumack’s Learning Space believes in guiding students to educational success by nurturing academic potential and acknowledging the individuality of the learner.
