Summer Math Learning Can Benefit Students
May 11, 2018
Summer vacation is almost here and many parents ask, “should I give my kids a break?” Many kids will spend their summer vacation focused on anything but schoolwork. While the break is an important time for families to relax, have some fun and energize themselves for next school year, it is also an opportune time for children to reinforce what they learned during the school year.
A John Hopkins study reveals that kids lose 2-3 months of critical thinking skills over the summer, with math skills being the hardest hit. As a result, they return to school with fewer skills than they had at the start of summer. The first 6 weeks of the fall semester are spent reviewing old material to make up for this loss. By end of grade 6, students who’ve experienced the “summer slide” over the years are on average two years behind state standards.
