Studies have shown that students forget much of what they learn during the school year over the summer-as much as two months of math and reading loss. It’s common sense, really…we’d all expect athletes' or musicians’ performance to suffer if they didn’t practice. If you don’t do something for three months, there’s going to be a drop-off. Math is one specific area that requires regular practice and repetition. Any child that doesn’t practice those skills is going to experience some setback. Without summer practice, we’re literally reversing some of the gains teachers and students have worked hard all year to achieve.
