Happy First Friday of Summer! Well, not technically (the official first day of summer falls on June 21st) but in the eyes of your child summer vacation has either already happened or is happening very soon.
Did you know?
- All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer.
- Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months.
This Fabulous Friday we have found a FREE summer math program for your students! Click the image below to access the website.
TenMarks Education is offering a free Summer Math Program to help strengthen your child’s math skills (normally $39.95). This program isn’t just for parents, it’s open to educators as well and is personalized for students in First Grade through High School.
Students begin by taking an assessment and then a personalized learning plan is created and adapts to his/her specific needs as the student progresses. Each students’ summer curriculum is designed to review concepts from the past year and also introduce concepts for the year ahead! Families and educators get detailed insights into performance and progress through the actionable report card feature. Students also earn certificates and rewards for completing the assignments.
With just three hours a week your student can avoid losing months of instruction and be prepared for the coming school year! As an added bonus, you won’t have to hear the…”I’m bored summer blues!”
