The summer learning slide doesn’t discriminate and can affect all children during their vacation period, leading many students returning to school for the new year unprepared. The Tutoring Center, Colleyville TX has prepared a great post on the topic, below.

What Is the Learning Loss?

School is more than just a place where lessons are taught. The environment of the school is designed to promote learning and encourage education, providing students with a range of engaging activities throughout the day and week. However, just as a sponge begins to drip once you take it out of water, so too does your child’s brain stop learning and begin to forget important items, such as math equations or scientific names. Over the break, of course, it isn’t noticeable, however, when your child returns to school they will need to spend valuable class hours relearning old lessons while their classmates continue on without them.

Preventing the Learning Loss

Despite what parents may think, enrolling children in summer school isn’t the best option, largely because students have worked hard throughout the year and not only deserve a break, but their body and brain need it. The goal is to find a balance between a vacation and instances of learning, such as these ideas:
  • Tutoring for a couple of sessions each week is a great way to prevent learning loss and improve on the past year’s grades.
  • Create short quizzes to use as a reward system when your child needs a ride to the mall, or use them during road trips.
  • Your child's notebook is a plethora of important information, so be sure to review it with them over the break to reinforce previous lessons learned.
