Summer Math Skills Practice
 
Researchers say on average kids lose 1.8 months of math skills during summer break. Fact fluency practice and grade level standard review are both key elements of mathematical success. Practicing basic facts (multiplication, division, addition and subtraction) and reviewing and integrating key concepts into your summer schedule can help combat summer slide!

Keeping a set of flashcards in the car or playing games like I Spy or 20 Questions with math terms is a fun way to pass the time while riding in the car or waiting for an event to begin.

For more fun ways to integrate math into summer activities read Helping Your Child Learn Mathematics http://www2.ed.gov/parents/academic/help/math/part.html#p1.

Web sites like www.multiplication.com and www.mathplayground.com provide interactive math games and immediate feedback for many math skills. Apps like Math Drills, Multiples, Bills and Coins, Clock Master, Fractions on a Number Line, Estimate Fractions & Equivalents are also great resources for combating summer slide. Worksheets and answer keys can be printed from http://www.commoncoresheets.com.
