The National Summer Learning Association says students can lose up to three months of academic growth during the summer break when they’re not in school. This phenomenon, commonly referred to as the “summer slide,” is completely avoidable with regular math practice.
Using DreamBox for 60 minutes a week not only helps student retain what they learned over the previous school year, but it also helps them prepare and move forward to start the next year with full confidence and a good base of knowledge. Since your school purchased DreamBox and made it available for home use, students are able to log in and use DreamBox over the summer, just as they would during the school year.
Since your student has a DreamBox Learning account through their school, you can easily set up parent access from home so you can monitor their progress.
In addition, here are some tips for parents on how to best promote summer learning.
