June 1st marks the unofficial start of summer, and we are here for it! Regardless of your plans, we have a fun and simple way to turn your child’s summer into a math game with a fan favorite: BINGO! Encourage your child to follow the prompts in the spaces and complete the tasks. When they do, mark them off until they have a complete row (across, down, or diagonally). As an extra challenge, see how many ways they can get Bingo over the coming weeks! Who knew strengthening math skills could be this much fun?!
Summer is the time for road trips, backyard BBQs, days at the beach and … math? That’s right! It’s important for students to make math a part of their summer so they don’t lose what they’ve learned during the school year. On average, children lose 2-3 months of math skills during the summer months. This is such a common problem it’s widely known as the “summer slide.”
