It’s that point of summer. When we are down to the last week(s), I get the compelling need to make the most of the time left. It’s a need to fulfill the summer bucket list, but also to make sure we have taken enough time this summer to work on sustaining academic skills. In taking stock, I believe we need to amp up our efforts with math. I feel that the girls have done well with digging into some good summer books. I feel that our son has mostly been read to in ample fashion. Math- we could be a better friend to and partake in more activities.
In turning my focus to math, I have Googled different math sites for some summer assistance. One site that I am liking is kidsnumbers.com. It is broken down by age and such skills that run from addition and telling time to doing algebra and geometry. My girls will clock, (but not too many hours to get in the way of summertime fun) some time at this site to brush up on skills before school starts. At this site, there are lessons, explanations, and instructional videos. It is made by graduates from Stanford, Harvard, and Berkeley. You can create an account to keep track of your progress. Did I mention it is totally free? Now I know I sound like a paid spokeswoman, but honestly this seems like a great product that your children will enjoy and that will give you peace of mind. It’s a good way to remind kids that math is fun, just like summer. It is reassurance that come time for school, your children will not be left in the dust.
