Beat The Summer Slide. Enjoy Summer Success Instead!

Jun 1, 2019

Help children combat the summer slide by practicing in fun, engaging ways at home, and finding a summer math program that’s just right!

When summer comes, the knowledge your child worked hard for all school year is in danger of slipping away. This is especially true for math: On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of math learning over the summer. This summer learning loss can have long-lasting effects, including lower test scores and self-confidence, and a lower chance of success in high school and college.

What does this mean for my child?

Taking a long summer break from math makes it difficult for your child to pick up where they left off. By taking steps to avoid summer learning loss, your child will be ready to learn new material instead of falling behind when a new school year begins.

Up to 6 weeks in the fall can be lost relearning last year’s content.

How to achieve summer success

One of the best ways to keep your child’s math skills sharp over the summer is to enroll them in a good summer math program. This is the ideal time to reinforce what they learned during the school year and introduce new concepts that will help them in the year ahead. Children have more time, are less tired, and are better able to focus when they don’t have the burden of classes, homework and extracurricular activities. 

To get the most out of summer math learning, choose a program that specializes in creative, effective, stress-free ways to teach math to your child based on their unique needs.
