Math Matters

Communicating about and participating in math during the summer months can help students practice and retain what they learned and prepare them for the upcoming school year.

You can help support this learning by playing math games and communicating about math that occurs in context within our lives. Using manipulatives to practice math concepts like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division is helpful. Counting small toys, placing marbles into groups, sorting rocks into egg cartons, counting when playing a card game, and speaking with your learners about daily money concepts are interactive ways that can support the practice of these skills.
