What does Summer Solutions offer?

Looking for a way to make sure your child’s math and language skills stay sharp this summer? Summer Solutions is the answer.

“The summer slide,” “summer learning loss,” “summer brain drain”—these are all names for a phenomenon parents and teachers know all too well. Over summer break, students can forget as much as two months’ worth of the material they learned during the school year. This requires teachers to spend as much as six weeks reviewing last year’s material, rather than moving forward with new topics. But, there is a way to prevent this. Having children review and practice math and language skills over the summer allows them to retain what they learned the previous year and begin the next school year ready for new topics and skills.

Summer Solutions combines summer review with distributed practice. The books revisit skills and engage students with lessons that take just minutes a day. We recommend that students complete three lessons a week over the ten-week summer break to allow for maximum retention and maximum summer fun. Each book includes an Answer Key and student Help Pages.
