You will not find a gap in math skills with this summer resource for your homeschool. Encouraging learning during the summer is not easy for most moms, but this math freebie can definitely help.
I know kids might be super excited to be “free” from math in the summertime. However, studies show that it takes twice as long to get back into studies after the summer than if you would have kept doing academic activities and learning straight through the summertime.
There is even a name for it; the summer slide. The summer slide is a regression or loss of all that valuable learning that took place during the school year.
Of course, you don’t have to maintain your same schedule or even half your schedule. However, activities and refresher learning resources like this Summer Math Calendars work great. They keep a child’s brain active and healthy to and get rid of the back-to-school blues.
These summer calendar math activities are for grades K-5, are super simple, one-page black and white calendars, and have one math problem to do each day. See? Not bad at all.
