The summer “brain drain” is no myth; studies suggest that kids can lose as much as two and a half years of math skills in just one summer. It can be challenging to encourage your children to practice math skills over the summer, but by turning a lesson plan into a game, your children are more apt to enjoy it. For example, older children can measure their rooms and furniture and create a bedroom blueprint.
For more fun ideas on math activities during the summer, watch this video. You’ll hear from a former math and science teacher about some of the educational products she has helped develop, including interactive flashcards.
Give your child a head start in life by enrolling him or her in a college prep school. Call Orinda Academy of East Bay at (925) 254-7553 or visit us on the Web to learn more about our private school.
