Summer Screen Time Rules Printable
The summer slump is a real thing, but I try to help my kids stay sharp with a good dose of summer fun mixed. The big thing is not letting them veg out in front of the TV or play on the computer all day. They need to run, jump, play and learn, with a little bit of lazy screen time thrown in too.
What drives me crazy is the constant request for screen time. My girls play very well together, most of the time, but they need direction to get them started. So I created a printable filled with things they should do before they ask for screen time.
We won’t always do everything, but it’s a great place to start and hopefully to keep the constant, “Can I watch TV / play on the computer?” questions to a minimum.

Weekly Reader Summer Express Workbooks
Since I am not a teacher, workbooks are a great way for me to help my kids review what they have learned. Summer Express workbooks are great because they are designed for kids to do one workbook page (front and back) each day of summer — 10 weeks, Monday – Friday.
Of course, you can skip and double up as needed, but one page a day is a nice refresh without spending a lot of time doing homework! It’s doable.
After taking a look at the books with my kids, they are excited because they get a sticker for each page they complete and a mini certificate each week. It’s a cute motivation, and my kids dig it.
Summer Express workbooks are available for children entering K – 5th grade.
- Summer Express Workbook Between Grades Pre-K and K
- Summer Express Workbook Between Grades K and 1
- Summer Express Workbook Between Grades 1 and 2
- Summer Express Workbook Between Grades 2 and 3
- Summer Express Workbook Between Grades 3 and 4
- Summer Express Workbook Between Grades 4 and 5
Each book is a review of a variety of concepts taught during the year prior and expected to know going into the next grade. Each book covers math, reading, grammar, vocabulary concepts and more, which means each day kids get to review something different. A great way to keep kids interested in working though the book.
Next fall, Sissy heads off to Kindergarten! It will be a big transition for her, and she was thrilled to learn that the Summer Express workbooks start with a book for the summer between Pre-K and Kindergarten. Now she can sit with her big sister and they can both work on their homework together.
