Kindergarten is such an important part of a child’s education. It introduces them to so many vital lessons and sets them up for success throughout their elementary school education. They learn important concepts like letters, writing, and basic math. Many students progress so much through the year that summer break can seem like it is halting the momentum. Therefore, I think it is so important to keep the learning going through the summer!
Summer learning helps students retain the information they learned throughout the school year. Summer learning loss can cause a lag at the beginning of the next school year because students take time to adjust and remember what they learned months before. If students continue to practice and learn through the summer months, their minds are kept sharp and they are better prepared for the next school year. This is because the information is still fresh in their minds and they have had plenty of time to practice and master what they learned.
To help improve summer learning for students, I created Summer Learning Packets for Kindergarten and other grade levels. You can assign them at the end of the year for a fun way for your students to continue to practice the extremely important information they learned throughout the school year. This way, the information they learned is better retained and they can go into 1st grade with their head held high because they know their stuff and they feel confident that they can continue to learn and thrive.
