STOP THE SUMMER LEARNING LOSS
These chilly spring days have us longing for the warm season of summer. Our students are becoming restless and looking forward to long, hot days with nothing to do but lose all the learning they absorbed over the arduous school year. Yikes! That’s not what an educator likes to hear.
Every year in the fall, classroom teachers spend countless hours re-teaching material due to students’ learning loss over the summer. In fact, according to studies by Johns Hopkins University’s School of Education, most students lose two months of math skills during the summer. Moreover, students usually score lower on standardized tests at the beginning of the new school year than they did at the end of the previous school year. Finding productive activities for your child during the summer can be difficult. Let us help prevent summertime regression this year.
