Summer learning loss is a well-known and research-proven fact, but most parents do not realize that it is their child’s math skills that suffer the most during the summer break. All students show some loss in math skills, with the majority of students losing about two months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills.

Researcher and university professor Harris Cooper says that parents naturally encourage summer reading practice, but are less likely to pay attention to math. The good news is that consistent skill practice over the summer months can help to improve academic achievement.
Evan-Moor, a publisher trusted by teachers for years, is now offering resources for parents to use with their children that are based on the latest standards and curriculum-based skills. Evan-Moor’s online activities provide a fun and interactive experience that motivates children in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade to practice basic math facts, especially useful over the summer break. Plus, the timed test format creates a fun “beat the clock” learning experience—with an adjustable timer that can be hidden from view.
“We are pleased to provide parents with free access to online math activities to help engage their children in learning over the summer and help to prevent the math summer slide,” said Trisha Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers.
