Kids can lose up to 2 months of math skills over the summer. To stop the summer math drain, it’s important that they stay fluent on basic math facts and operations. Take a look at your child’s school papers, so you know what they’ve been working on and what they need to practice. Do they need to drill basic addition and subtraction skills, work on number bonds, practice multiplication and division, understand fractions, etc.? Just set aside 10 minutes a day to practice those math facts to keep their brains active.
