Summer Math and Reading Opportunities
Dear Parents of EY 4th and 5th graders,
Summer is a great time to shift gears to other activities, spend more time with family, and recharge for the return to school in the fall. Research shows, however, that student achievement in reading and math can decline by one-month’s worth of school learning or more over the summer.
Fortunately for this year’s 4th and 5th graders, they will have access over the summer to reading and math online programs that they have used during the school year. The programs available online are:
Kids A-Z (also known as Raz Kids)
Zearn (skills and concepts- this will be set to fractions this summer)
Xtramath (math fact fluency)
If possible, we encourage you to have your child access these programs over the summer to keep their reading and math skills fresh. This will help them start their 5th or 6th grade year with confidence.
Thank you. Have a great summer!
