Summer Math & Literacy Practice Work

Students often regress in their math skills and reading levels by one month or more in the absence of practice during the summer months. Research has shown that over the summer months students may regress in their academic skills by one month or more. Each year, considerable instructional time is spent reviewing skills and knowledge lost over the summer months. While research into the summer learning effect is on-going, there is little doubt as to the importance of reading and practicing Math and Literacy skills over the summer holiday. For this reason, we have created calendars with fun Math and Literacy activities for your child to complete over the summer months. It is important that students space out their summer work, doing a little bit each week, rather than completing it all at once right before school begins. The activities are required summer work for students entering Grade 1 through Grade 11 and will enable your child to review concepts and reinforce skills learned during the past school year and be ready to hit the ground running when we return to school at the beginning of September. Wishing you a safe and relaxing summer!
