Regular practice over the summer with problem solving, computation and math facts will maintain and strengthen the gains made over the school year. While working with your child, ask questions like how the solution was found and why a particular strategy was chosen.
Math calendars are perfect for families to post on refrigerators where students can practice a problem every day. Print out the calendar corresponding to the grade your student will enter in the fall.
Children who don't read over the summer vacation risk losing more than two months of reading achievement by fall and can be two years behind their peers by the end of sixth grade.
