84% of teachers say students forget or "lose" skills, knowledge, or grade-level equivalency over the summer. Over time, summer learning loss can really add up: by the end of 6th grade, those who have lost reading skills are on average 2 years behind their peers.  

This summer program can help prevent some of that and work to bring or maintain reading and math skills.   

This course will focus on the tools that students entering
grade 6 need to achieve success in reading and writing.
Students will improve their reading comprehension through
an exposure to a variety of literature and will also explore
various types of writing such as narrative, persuasive,
informative, and experience the expression of feelings that
make up a poem. 

Math skills will center around drill and practice for those math facts and practicing with Fastmath.   

Third grade is a year of highly visible progress in reading, writing and language arts. By the end of third grade language arts, students should:

  • Learn the importance of prewriting strategy
  • Understand the formula for the writing process
  • Learned how to write for a particular audience
  • Developed an expanded vocabulary to create more in-depth sentences
  • Read with fluency, with focus on comprehension

Third grade is also a year of visible math skill development. By the end of third grade math, students should:

  • Multiply and divide multi-digit numbers by a single-digit number
  • Understand and work with simple fractions and decimals
  • Be able to manipulate and read basic graphs
  • Understand the concepts of area and perimeter
  • Be able to apply math to everyday activities
