Reviews - What do customers think about The Original Summer Bridge Activities: 2nd to 3rd Grade?
Not as Thorough As It Could Be Jul 18, 2008
The bridge workbook is good, but there is only one page per day - it's not extemely thorough. It takes my step-daughter less than 10 minutes to complete the page every day - I had hoped the book would provide her with 20 - 30 minutes of review. The content is there, but I would like to see it expanded to a page of math and a page of language arts and handwriting activities each day.
Very nice product! Jul 10, 2008
Our daughter is very motivated by the book and the daily activities take just the right amount of time.
Bridging the grade gap in the summer Jun 23, 2008
Summer Bridge Activities-we have used these for 4 years for all 3 of our children. We use them to help the children keep up their school/academic skills over the summer break. They are a GREAT adjunct to summer reading. The books have various "exercises" covering all subjects in a day by day format and have "grading" pages with stickers and stars for completion. The children initially balk at doing them but soon enjoy "remembering" what they did in school!!!
Great Summer Learning Books Jun 18, 2008
My husband and I get workbooks for our kids every summer and these are by far the best ones we have gotten. There is a page (front and back) for each day and every day includes some type of math skill, and reading or english skills. There is enough work to help keep the kids in practice but not so much that they feel overwhelmed. The book reviews what they learned in the grade they just completed and gradually starts introducing them to the skills they will be learning in the next grade. I think getting a taste of what is coming up makes it all just a little less intimidating and helps them get a little head start. We liked these books so much we have already purchased the workbooks for next summer!
Great workbook for summer! Jun 8, 2008
We have used summer bridge now for the last 6 years every summer. My kids love the books and it is great motivation to keep learning over the summer. They really enjoy the goal setting that the books have and they like that they can choose their reward when they reach their goal. I have them do a page a day, but sometimes they want to 3 or 4 pages so they can reach their goal sooner and recieve their reward. The rewards aren't always tangible things either, sometimes it is going on a bike ride as a family, or going down to the river to swing on the rope, etc. They have learned that you don't always have to spend money to have a fun reward for work done well!! We love summer bridge!
