Summer Math Practice for Kids and Teens
Published May 16, 2015
If children do not practice their reading skills during the summer, their reading level can go down. This can also happen to their math skills! Help your child retain what they have learned during the school year by trying some of the following resources throughout the summer months. If you have any questions on these suggestions, be sure to ask a librarian at your local library branch!
