Learning never ends, especially during the summer months. Summertime is an optimal time to strengthen skills and discover new areas of interest. Did you know that students experience an average of 2.6 months of learning loss during the summer months? If your child is below grade level, then the gap grows greater.
According to this study:
“All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer”
