Over the summer students experience a loss of the academic gains they made
over the previous year called the summer slide. Our brains really are
like muscles, and when we don’t exercise them, they tend to lose
their form. Math formulas are forgotten, new vocabulary lost and the summer
slide puts students a little further back each year.
What the studies show
A recent report from the National Summer Learning Association has this
to say about summer academic loss: “A conservative estimate of lost
instructional time is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of
the school year.” While a certain amount of loss happens in all
academic abilities, it seems to be most pronounced with math and reading
Better learning means a better life
You don’t need to get your kids learning every day over the summer
to maintain their academic levels or even move them ahead of the class.
Just a couple of hours a week is all they need. Find a one-to-one tutor
who will work to their individual learning style and help them fill in
the missing building blocks.
The summer is also the perfect time to help your student to brush up on
their executive skills. These are the organizational and study skills
they need to be exceptional independent learners. Skills like task prioritization,
organization and time management will mean that your student has the requisite
skillset they need to work on their own next semester.
