summer learning loss

Q. What is summer learning loss and what can I do to help prevent it?

A. Summer learning loss is a common problem that results in the loss of knowledge gained over the school year. The good news is that parents can help prevent it. A few strategies include: daily reading - many schools require summer reading but students must read consistently over the entire summer; regular writing – creative writing and journaling are great ways to maintain strong writing skills; recreational learning experiences – trips to museums, art galleries, and monuments actively promote student learning, particularly when the trip focuses on something the student has been reading about or researching; consider a summer learning program – there are many local learning centers that work with students on math, reading, writing, and study skills to ensure success when students return to school.
