Each student is required to spend some time each week practicing reading and math over the summer break to maintain and improve their skills for next year. This summer work will be monitored and will be used as a project grade during the first quarter. This year, instead of physical summer packets, we will be using Achieve3000 to support growth in reading and Khan Academy to support growth in math.
For reading, students are expected to complete two Achieve3000 articles a week from . Only articles with the multiple choice activity completed at 75% or higher on the first try will count towards the two article expectation. Students and parents can track their progress on the articles over these 10 weeks on the attached Achieve3000 worksheet.
For math, students are expected to complete 30 minutes of Khan Academy a week from . These 30 minutes should be at grade level or at their MAP score level. They should focus on reviewing and completing their grade level mission of the grade they have just completed. Once that Mission is mastered, then the student can move on to the next grade level mission or work on their MAP score level.
Please reach out with any questions you may have.
In order to avoid the summer slump, it is important that your student uses the program on a weekly basis. If your student does not have computer or internet access at home, we encourage you to make use of the local library.
Students who meet all of the requirements will be invited to a special ice cream sundae party during the first week of school. We look forward to welcoming our students back in September and building upon the learning that has taken place over the summer!
