It’s January, and while many parts of the country are experiencing record amounts of snow and cold temperatures, we already are thinking about summer—sunshine, the end of school, and the inevitable summer slide in learning. But is the summer slide inevitable?
Research has shown students can lose up to two months of reading and spelling during the summer break. Research reveals:
However, there is good news. Research also indicates engaging and captivating summer learning programs help students stay on track and even gain skills during the summer to better prepare them for the next school year.
There are a host of great programs specifically designed to fill learning gaps and help prevent summer learning loss. Vmath® Summer Adventure, REWARDS®, Velocity®, TimeWarp® Plus, and Step Up to Writing® are programs with flexible implementations that can be taught for a short period of time—and achieve lasting results.
For example, TimeWarp Plus from Voyager Sopris Learning® is specifically designed to address summer learning loss in the areas of reading and writing. The program incorporates teacher-led instruction, small group interactions, self-selected reading passages, and writing and reflective thinking.
For the past 10 years, teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District have used TimeWarp Plus as part of their summer school program. From kindergarten through middle school, the program virtually whisks students away to exotic lands where they have engaging adventures and are introduced to intriguing experiences—all while learning reading and writing skills along the way.
Teachers from the district who used TimeWarp Plus experienced very positive results, year after year. Not only has the program improved academic skills but teachers report it also has decreased behavioral problems—making learning fun and engaging for the whole class.
