summer slideFor years, moms have been making their kids take summertime piano lessons. Not surprisingly, moms know best: it turns out those piano lessons may have helped you more than you realize. Over the summer, students typically lose over 22% of  what they learned the previous year. They call it “summer slide” and Kim Bellini, director of the LearningRx center in The Woodlands, Texas, has seen it firsthand.

In a recent article, Bellini says “Speaking from my experience as a teacher, we typically spend the first six to eight weeks of the school year helping students relearn what they forgot over the summer. It’s just like working out muscles – you have to keep your brain trained.”

So, how can we keep kids’ brains in shape and avoid summer slide? Here’s one way that might surprise you.

  1. The first answer is found by visualizing the 5 men standing in a line, and remembering each of their names. Then, moving the last three men up to the front of the line, and keeping track of their order. Do that three times, and here is what you get. First, they are standing in this order: Paul, Ben, Andy, Dave, Tim. Move the last three to the beginning of the line (keeping them in consecutive order) and you have: Andy, Dave, Tim, Paul, Ben. Do it one more time and you have: Tim, Paul, Ben, Andy, Dave. Do it one last time and you wind up with: Ben, Andy, Dave, Tim, Paul. Therefore, Dave is in the middle of the line, and Dave is the correct answer. This puzzle takes not only logic and reasoning skills, but also visualization and reading comprehension skills.

logic-and-reasoning-skill-testAny logic and reasoning skill test is designed to see how well you handle and solve problems, using logic. Logic & Reasoning is one of the brain’s cognitive skills. When this skill is strong, logical thinking comes naturally, although logic, like math, still must be taught. A person with weak logic and reasoning skills will have a harder time grasping logical concepts and approaching problems logically in order to solve them with minimal frustration. A logic and reasoning skill test can give you an idea of the strength or weakness of this area of your brain.

LearningRx.orgIntroducing a brand new LearningRx website… LearningRx.org!

Parents with children who struggle to learn are careful to choose wisely which programs they invest in. They want a program that is created by and run by people who care for them and their children, from the heart.  The purpose of LearningRx.org is to give parents the confidence that we are indeed that kind of company.

Another reason for the creation of LearningRx.org is that we receive many questions about the background and identity of our company, and before now we have not had a convenient place on the web that provides the answers to these questions. So, the LearningRx.org pages focus on answering questions about LearningRx, Inc. with information that might not be readily available on our other web presences.
