Summer Learning with Brain Chase

This post is sponsored by Brain Chase via The Motherhood.  Opinions, as always are my own. Thanks for reading!

We’re big proponents of preserving our children’s unstructured play time – during the school year and throughout the fluid summer months.  We also understand that many kids lose academic ground over the summer.  Meshing magical childhood freedom with the sort of proper support to help our kids thrive academically, and as growing individuals can be challenging.

Last summer, we put our soon to be second-grader in a supplemental summer math program.  It was a phenomenal experience, but with spontaneous plans and weekend getaways – we missed a bunch of sessions, resulting in a hefty loss of funds. That’s why we’re thrilled to be working with an exciting, online summer enrichment program called Brain ChaseThis flexible, five-week, summer learning challenge is suitable for grades 2 through 8 and has an incredibly fun and adventurous theme.  Think massive global treasure hunt powered by reading, writing and math.

Supplimental summer learning for kids

Brain Chase partners with resources that we know and trust including MyON Digital Library and Khan Academy.  As participants complete an hour of engaging online work each day, they unlock an original animated adventure series with puzzles and clues to uncover actual golden, buried treasure. The first child to identify the location of the treasure wins a trip with their family to dig it up – and reveal a $10,000 college scholarship.  Last year’s winner traveled to Spain!

Brain Chase is personalized and customized to every student’s academic level.  Participants even receive writing feedback from credentialed teachers.  Kids will love receiving adventure tools in the mail to help solve bonus challenges (check out the compass, seeds and decoder ring above!) alongside the fun and exciting curriculum.  The 2015 Brain Chase challenge is set to find the Sunstone of Cortés, a mysterious calendar stolen from the Aztec empire by Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortés in the 1500s.  Our second grader is pumped to participate this summer, and we’re thrilled that Brain Chase is extending a special 15% off discount code for readers of Marino Bambinos.  Enter MARINOBAMBINOS15 at checkout to claim this great offer!
