Summer Math Opportunities.
My suggestions for summer learning:
*Practice Fluency for 5 or 10 minutes, twice a week (XtraMath or MobyMax).
*Practice other skills for 15-20 minutes, once or twice a week (IXL, Mobymax, Khan Academy).
Use IXL to practice various skills. Students may even select the grade level at which they would like to practice. There's nothing wrong with spending a little time below grade level, or above, but most practice should be at grade level.
Another way to use IXL is to do the Diagnostic. Students already know how to do this. They open the Diagnostic and answer 5-7 questions every week, then choose Recommendations, based on their scores.
Use XtraMath to practice fact fluency. This is so important, and only takes about 5 minutes, 2 or 3 times per week.
MobyMax is a great way to practice math and science skills. Students may choose Science or Math, under Subjects. For science, just get right to work. For math, students may choose Mathematics, Numbers, Fact Fluency, or Test Prep.
Sign up for a free account at Khan Academy. This program provides video tutorials and practice exercises in math. You can use it in different ways. You can have your child start at kindergarten and work their way through each grade level. This gives them review and helps identify weak areas to work on. You could also just have your child start at 4th grade and go as far as they can, moving on to 5th grade, once 4th is mastered. Some students have already been practicing at a 5th grade level.
