Although we won't have homework during break, here are a few ideas to keep
your child learning while taking time off from school:

Play games.  Games teach interpersonal skills (how to win and lose graciously)
as well as problem solving strategies.  If you're looking for a good game as a
gift, check out Learning Express.  They have a great selection and many are
"out" to try. 

Have your child be the navigator on your next trip.  

Have your child estimate tax, discounts, and totals when shopping.  It's a
great skill in order to be a smart consumer. 

Read.  Read together, listen to books on CD when traveling, have them read to
younger siblings or cousins.  A love of reading is the one thing that all
successful students have in common. 

Have a wonderful break everyone!
