Get ready to discover and do math all summer! Just as students benefit from reading throughout the summer, regular practice with problem solving, computation, and math facts will strengthen and maintain mathematical gains made during the school year. We recommend that you try to integrate 15-20 minutes of math activities into your child's day.
On this page you will find grade appropriate math calendars, suggested projects, workbooks, and links to other resources. We recommend that students entering Grades I-V choose some of these to work on this summer. The goal is for your child to have fun thinking and working collaboratively and to communicate mathematical ideas.
Students entering Grades VI-VIII benefit from regular practice with problem solving, computation, and math facts over the summer to maintain and strengthen the mathematical gains made during the school year. Recommendations for each grade level are listed at the right.
There are lots of great ways to bring math into your summer days!
We hope you will have fun doing math this summer. Be ready to bring and share a favorite activity with your class and teacher in September.
