School's Out for Summer!


In many parts of the country, school's out for summer and students are heading to the beach for some surfing, swimming or beach volleyball.

Just as it takes practice to be able to stay on the surfboard or swim long distances, it takes regular practice for elementary students to keep from losing ground in math over the summer.

That's where Excel Math Summer School Edition can help.

Some teachers are recommending that parents use the Excel MathSummer School Edition with their students to help close the achievement gap over the summer. Here's what one teacher in Illinois called to tell us:

"We are thrilled with Excel Math! We even have parents ordering the summer school edition to keep the math concepts fresh in their students' minds over the summer break.”

— Teacher at St. Patrick Catholic School
     Washington, Illinois

According to The HechingerEd blog, "When kids return to school in the fall, on average they’ve slipped by about a month from where they were in the spring." 

Since Excel Math uses a unique spiraling strategy, students get more out of the lessons when you teach multiple lessons sequentially within each grade level.

This process of spaced repetition gets the math concepts into your students' long-term memory.

Excel Math Summer Edition is used by teachers, camp directors and tutors to provide remedial instruction for students who need extra help. It's also used with more advanced students to help them stay focused during the summer and to challenge them with additional brainteasers (Stretches) and in-depth word problems (Create A Problem exercises) that teach higher-order thinking skills and combine math with literacy. Learn more about Excel Math Summer School Edition for Pre-Kindergarten through Pre-Seventh grades.

Excel Math Summer Lessons are an inexpensive way to keep your students learning math over the summer break so they don't fall behind when school starts again in the fall.
