During the summer months, many children take a vacation from learning and can lose a lot of what they learned from the school year. On average students lose about 1-2 months of math growth each summer. Therefore, students should continue to cultivate their math skills during the summer months.Summer learning can be as unobtrusive as…
- asking your child to count pocket change and practice time-telling skills.
- making your child think critically. Ask a lot of questions with the words "how" or "why."
- using car trips to practice math facts. Have your student calculate the vehicle's gas mileage,
- or ask them to add the numbers on a passing license plate and determine whether the result
- is a prime or a composite number.
- having your child prepare a meal from start to finish, including setting the menu, sticking to a
- budget, shopping, and following a recipe.
