Prevent the Summer Learning Slide

Despite sounding like summer play equipment, the learning slide is actually responsible for many students returning to school in the new year unprepared for their lessons. The Tutoring Center, Plano has prepared a post which explains further.

Learn More About the Slide

During your child’s school day, their brain is in the perfect space to learn. Not just because of the daily classes, but the range of educational activities on offer which works to keep your child’s brain stimulated. However, when their brain is removed from this space for a long period, such as during the summer break, it can begin to forget important lessons and information, much the way that a sponge drips when removed from water. This causes students to return to school and spend precious time relearning old information while their classmates continue on.

Preventing the Slide

Full-time study over the summer break not only isn’t the best option, but it also isn’t a good one. Hard working students have earned a break from a full-time course load and will actually benefit from it. The key is to find a balance between learning and vacation, for example:
  • Sit down with your student, their notebook, and snack, and review the notes from the previous school year.
  • A couple of tutoring sessions throughout the week during the summer break can not only prevent learning loss but fill in learning gaps from the previous year’s classes.
  • Make a set of small quizzes which your child can complete during a road trip or even as part of a reward system, such as in exchange for a ride to the mall.
