How Do You Plan to Help Children Learn This Summer?

Michelle at 3AM Teacher is hosting a School's Out Summer Giveaway.  She has posed a great question:  How do you plan to help children learn this 
summer?  
My summer plans revolve around my own children, 8 and 10.  With my 8 year old son, I will be reading books together and helping him continue to practice the cursive writing he learned this year.  With my 10 year old daughter, who is going into middle school, I will be teaching her how to type and how to write in cursive (she skipped in school so she missed the cursive year).  She will also be doing some advance math preparation with her dad (a middle school math teacher).  Isn't that convenient?!


For teaching typing, I have purchase "Keyboard Classroom".  It looks like a great program to me.  You can read about it yourself HERE.  I think the keyboard finger guides are really going to help her learn quickly.
I am linking up with Michelle's linky and giveaway because I want to find out what YOU are doing this summer involving children's learning.  Click on her name or either of the giveaway  pictures to join her linky and answer the question:  How do you plan to help children learn this summer?
