How to Prevent the Summer Learning Slide from Affecting Your Student

You would be forgiven for thinking that the summer learning slide is a piece of play equipment at your local park where everybody learns news lessons as they slide down. In reality, however, it is the opposite. The Tutoring Center, Oro Valley (Oracle and Magee) has a post below on the topic.

So What Is the Summer Learning Slide?

The summer learning slide is the name given to the phenomenon which occurs when a student takes an extended break from their studies, such as the summer vacation period. During this time away from an educational environment, a child’s brain begins to lose and forget valuable lessons and information, such as a math lesson here or a science equation there, and so on. While these pieces of information may be small, when it comes time for your student to return back to school, they will need to spend valuable lesson time relearning old information while also trying to keep up with current classes.

How Can You Prevent It from Happening to Your Youngster?

It can be easy to think that full-time summer school is the way to go, however, it’s important to remember that your student has earned their summer vacation from full-time classes. Instead, consider these options:
  • Review their notes from the previous school year, particularly any lessons which posed a particular challenge for their brains.
  • A few one-to-one tutoring sessions is a great way to not only retain knowledge but to actually advance it, giving your student the leading edge once the new school year begins.
  • Create some pop-quizzes to give your youngster at random times during the week. Consider a quick pop-quiz on the way to the store with its successful completion being rewarded by allowing them to choose dinner for the night or a treat from the candy aisle.
