How does a child learn over the summer without being excruciatingly painful?

How do you manage to do everything and not lose the summer – neither for lessons nor for fun?

Trying to help their child prepare for a new school year, parents often turn school vacations into a marathon of extra activities. They are understandable: all schoolchildren were given homework for the summer, and it is necessary to get  homework help, English needs to be repeated, the multiplication table needs to be taught, and if a son or daughter goes to first grade, it would be good to work on their copybooks and study numbers. But often this leads to the opposite result: children return to school tired from lessons beforehand.

To keep children’s interest in learning alive during the vacations, the experts at Skysmart school have developed a Summer Program, revising the approach to lessons. Instead of memorization – a game, instead of complicated theory – fascinating experiments, instead of grades – feedback from teachers. Skysmart also has no homework – only creative tasks and practice. All lessons are online, which means that you can study at the dacha, at the sea, or in a summer camp. All the child needs is a laptop and the Internet. There are different programs for different ages.

4-7 years.

Express preparation for the first grade.

We at Skysmart think that in order for the first year of school to be stress-free for a child, over the summer it is necessary to develop their interest in knowledge, broaden their horizons and prepare them for future lessons through exciting games. In this case, the transition from play to learning activities will be smooth and comfortable. You can get to know the four main subjects of elementary school – reading, writing, math, and the world around us – in story time lessons with a cute cat named Katya.

The course of English for the very young will allow the child to first learn to recognize words by ear and speak, and then to read and write – all as in their native language. Comics, games, quests, and songs on an interactive platform – the lessons run like a game, during which children don’t even notice that at least 60% of the lesson is in English.

Ages 8-14.

Have fun and develop a skill

Children at this age love computer games, and parents often worry about whether they are spending too much time on this “useless” activity. Skysmart is legalizing kids’ interest in games with a new course on making games in Python. In 5 months of classes, kids will be able to create their own game, make a Tilda landing page, and figure out how to promote their project.

For kids who like to write (or vice versa: for those who have an F in Russian), Skysmart has a course called “Writer’s Marathon” that will show how school rules make texts better, and will prove that writing interesting is a skill, not a talent. And help develop that skill.

Ages 14-18.

Finding yourself In the adult world.

All teens want to make money, but how? The simplest thing is to get a job as a courier, but the most interesting and promising – to understand how investments work and economic laws in general. How to save a million, what is cryptocurrency, where it is profitable to invest a hundred rubles, why not all discounts are profitable, how not to fool yourself by signing a contract – this knowledge is useful to anyone who wants to learn how to form their own budget, work and earn. They don’t teach this at school, but they do on a financial literacy course.

To help your child understand and love one of the most difficult school subjects, offer them a course called Physics in the World of Professions. The acquired skills can be used in one of the professions of the future, because physics is needed literally everywhere: in space exploration, in the search for alternative energy sources, and in the automation of processes. In addition to the theoretical part, the students will conduct interesting and safe experiments at home and practice real tasks faced by specialists.
