Summer Learning Loss Opportunity
Over the summer kids lose an average of one full month of reading skill with an even greater loss of 2.6 months in math, this is often referred to as summer learning loss. Not only do they loose previously learned material but it also takes 4-6 weeks for teachers to reteach students after summer vacation.
It's not all bad news, if your optimist, because this situation also presents us with a great opening to help our kids catch up in areas they struggle or even get a bit ahead. Summer learning loss offers us as parents such an amazing opportunity to help our kids stay strong in what they have learned and even catch up in areas that they need help in.
