It is hard to believe that summer is quickly approaching…and with that comes the typical summer activities: pool time, family vacations, and …brain drain?! As we all know, summer learning loss is real! Students on average lose a month of learning over the summer…though this varies with subject matter. Most students experience a loss of 2.5 months of learning in mathematics. Help! How can we keep our students’ skills sharp and ready for the fall?
Check out this site, and encourage your parents to do the same. There are ideas and activities in several different subjects: “10 everyday ways to explore Science while having fun”, “11 ways to learn math”, etc. There are even “summer learning contracts” that the students can sign.
