Internet4Classrooms has put together a free summer learning program for every age level from Pre-K through High School. On a daily and weekly basis, we will provide students and parents fun activities, links to great learning games, and other educational resources that will help them get ready for the 2010-2011 school year.
We feel that summer learning loss is a major concern:
- Did you know that on average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills during the summer months?
- Research shows that teachers typically spend between 4 to 6 weeks re-teaching material that students have forgotten over the summer.
We've designed this program to keep students engaged in learning. Sign up for the program can be found here: http://www.internet4classrooms.com/links_grades_kindergarten_12/summer_learning_2010.htm (you can also use this short link: http://tiny.cc/4al1x )

More about the program:
- Resources are split by grade level as follows: Pre-K thru Kindergarten, 1st-2nd grade, 3rd-4th grade, 5th-6th grade, 6th-8th grade (middle school focus), 9th-10th grade, and 11th-12th grade (college prep focus).
- Information is sent via email, at the subscriber's choice of weekly and/or daily. Subscribers use links to proceed to the Internet4Classrooms website to gain free access to the educational materials.
- We understand that there needs to be a lot of "fun" to make independent summer learning activities work. Content is grouped into three types: fun activities, links to great learning games, and educational resources.
- Learning activities are age, subject and standards appropriate. In subject like math, the focus is to lay a proper foundation for the next school year, whereas in subjects like reading and history we preview the year long course contents over the weeks of the summer.
- At the elementary level, the daily feeds include age appropriate historical facts, information about major/minor holidays occurring on that day, and age appropriate suggestions for summer reading books, hopefully with a few trips to the local library.
Please share this information with anyone that you feel may be interested and/or benefit from this program.
Best Wishes for a Great Summer!
In February, 1997, Susan Brooks and Bill Byles began a collaborative effort to extend assistance to fellow teachers. In November of 2000 that project expanded to a web presence known as Internet 4 Classrooms ("i4c"), a free web portal designed to assist anyone who wants to find high-quality, free Internet resources to use in classroom instruction, developing project ideas, reinforcing specific subject matter areas both in the class and at home and even for online technology tutorials. The portal visited monthly by over 1 million teachers, parents and students of all ages on six of the seven continents (there are not many classrooms in Antarctica) and is available to anyone with an Internet connection. We do not charge a subscription fee. We welcome cooperative partnerships with individual classrooms, schools, school districts and school boards - please contact us for details.
Internet4Classrooms founders and executive management are available to the press for interviews regarding this program or any other educational topic. Please feel free to contact Bill Franklin at your convenience by email (email@example.com) or telephone (786-242-2314).
