Summer Reading

on June 11, 2020

Dear Families,

       According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading. 

 As a result of the school shut down, estimates suggest students will return in fall 2020 with roughly 70% of the learning gains in reading relative to a typical school year.  However in mathematics, students are likely to show much smaller learning gains and in some grades, nearly a full year behind what we would observe in normal conditions. In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, students should be reading on a daily basis and or completing math activities. Below are some activities you can do:

  • Raz Kids – – Many great books to read!  
  • Zearn or Zearn Packet
  • Eureka Math Resource –   Find Knowledge on the Go, then click Access Free Resources.  Click your grade or the next grade!
  • Read at least 20 minutes each day
  • Summer Packet

Thank you so much for supporting your child’s development through summer learning. Have a wonderful summer!

☀️ Ms. Gerardo
