Research proves that students can lose more than 50% of what they’ve learned the previous school year during the summer months and that 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. (Making Summer Count, RAND Education; National Summer Learning Association) Decades of research confirms what every teacher knows: students’ performance at the beginning of the school year suffers without educational learning opportunities during the summer (http://www.summerlearning.org).
To promote summer learning and celebrate National Summer Learning Day, Evan-Moor Educational Publishers is providing free online “flashcard” activities to help young children practice basic skills over the summer months.
Additionally, Evan-Moor has created Daily Summer Activities books to help prevent the summer slide. Each book contains 100+ exercises, and by completing just two activities a day, five days a week, students practice the essential concepts and skills that will enable them to make a smooth transition to the next grade level. Students benefit from the grade-appropriate skill practice in core subject areas, including reading comprehension, math, spelling, handwriting, creative writing, and geography.
Each Daily Summer Activities book has 144 full-color pages and is only $12.99. The series is comprised of nine levels for students in grades PreK–8.
Evan-Moor Educational Publishers has been “Helping Children Learn” since 1979, publishing high-quality resource materials for both teachers and parents across the PreK–8th grade curriculum.
