This is just a reminder that students entering grade 5 in the fall have been asked to complete 8 summer assignments in ALEKs. Students need to attain a 93% or higher on each of these assignments in order to be eligible to attend the pancake breakfast in the fall hosted by our very own math department.
Also, Ms. Griffin has asked each student to read a United States historical fiction book and complete the following assignment by August 31st.
Don’t let the summer slide happen to you!
Have a wonderful summer!
- All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer. (White, 1906; Heyns, 1978; Entwisle & Alexander 1992; Cooper, 1996; Downey et al, 2004)
- Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. (Cooper, 1996)
- Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do. (Duffett et al, 2004)
