The summer learning slide isn’t an activity you will find at the park, and is instead the cause of many students returning to a new school year to find they are unprepared for their new lessons. To learn more about the subject, The Tutoring Center, Allen, TX has prepared the following post to share.

The Learning Loss

Your child’s school is a great environment for learning. Not just because of the classes taught, but because the space is designed to promote learning and encourage knowledge sharing by ensuring a range of activities are available to keep students engaged. However, just like a sponge will begin to drip one you remove it from water, your child’s brain will stop learning and similarly begin to forget important information and lessons. The challenge faced is that students don’t know it is happening over the break until they sit down in their new class and need to spend valuable class time relearning old lessons while their teacher and classmates move ahead without them.

How Can It Be Prevented?

Despite what a parent’s first thought may be, full-time summer school isn’t always the answer. Not only have students earned the break by working hard throughout the year but their body and brain also need a break from constant studying. The key is to find a comfortable medium between vacation time and learning instances, for example:
  • Use small quizzes while on long drives or as part of a reward system each time that your child needs a ride to the mall or to their friend’s house.
  • Review their notebook alongside them a couple of times throughout the break to help reinforce lessons learned.
  • Tutoring sessions, even a couple of times a week, is a great way to prevent learning loss and help students improve on their past year’s grades.
