The lazy days of summer are right around the corner and for most students it means trading in books and calculators for beach towels and video games. But, neglecting numbers and novels often leads to the dreaded summer brain drain.
The result? A sharp decline in students’ academic skills, and a widening of the achievement gap. According to various studies, students typically lose up to two months of learning during the summer and instructors spend the first couple of months teaching what was learned last school year rather than introducing new concepts.
To keep children from taking a step back in education, keeping their minds stimulated is crucial as we head into the summer months. Eye Level Math & English programs are a great way to keep your child’s brain active during their break from school. Eye Level offers math, reading, and writing enrichment programs in the summer months that will not only allow your child to review what they learned in the previous year but also get a head start into the next grade level’s material.
