School may be out for summer, but that doesn’t mean that the learning ends!
Over the years I have experimented time and time again with summer learning. There has been everything from great success stories to complete failures. I have absolutely bored my kids to death and sparked new interests. We have put the focus too much on learning forgetting to make things fun and we have gone days on end with no learning at all.
5 years later, I feel like we are finally in a system that has balance. Today I want to show you a few ways that we plan to have fun with summer learning this year.
Earlier in the year I started collaborating with Timberdoodle. Timberdoodle offers everything from books & home school curriculum to toys & games that are fun to play with and educational too. AKA this home school mom’s dream. We want to say a huge thanks to Timberdoodle for sponsoring today’s post and as always, all opinions are my own.
Recently we were given the chance to try out Tenzi. Tenzi is a unique and fun number / strategy game that quickly became a family favorite. This fast paced game is the perfect way to work on learning numbers with the littlest learners or start drilling quick addition math skills with older learners.
We also received the 77 Ways To Play TENZI a card deck that takes this game to the next hilarious level, offering even more variety with your TENZI dice. I love that there is so much variety with this game from the way we play to the way we score. Every time we play it it’s like a whole new game. That makes Tenzi exciting for everyone.
Marissa becomes so intently focused while playing this game.
I love how it is challenging her to make quick, logical decisions.
Emily has a whole new laid back approach. She loves rolling the dice and trying to get all the dice, yes ALL 40, on the same number. This always keeps her occupied for a while so I call it a win.
With 77 Ways To Play TENZI you can learn games like PYRAMIDZI, FARMZI, PAIRSZI and GUESSZI. Because who doesn’t want to play a fast paced dice game while making farm animal noises? Moo’ing makes everything more funny. I am pretty sure that might be a fact.
And what might possible be my favorite part about this game is that the whole family loves it. FINALLY a game that Russ and I don’t internally grumble when the girls ask to play. In fact we may or may not be guilty of playing it without the kids. You know you have found a winner when that happens friends.
But don’t just take my word for it, pick up TENZI and find out for yourself.
