Here is the letter I sent out with summer resources: Summer Letter 2019
Keep up those math skills. Students that bring in evidence of regular summer math practice to keep their skills sharp can visit me the first week of school for some special prizes and goodies for a job well done.
Holy Rosary Summer Math Challenge:
Summer is almost here! We know that summer is a time to relax and recharge, but we hope the students find some time to do some math, too! You will find the directions and a summer math calendar in your child’s report card envelopes and you can also access them on the link above. The students can fill out the calendar throughout the summer. At the end of the summer, the students will turn in their calendars with their full name, grade, totaled hours (15 or more), and parent signature into either the office or Mrs. Heuer. These students will get an ice cream party during the school day in the fall.
Here are some links you might like to check out for summer math practice:
Mathletics.com The students will have access to their Mathletics accounts all summer. This site offers both review and advanced math practice. Instructional videos are also available to teach skills.
Common Core Sheets and Math Aids: Run off your own math worksheets based on the Common Core Standards. Both are great site we have used in the classroom. Answer sheetsare also provided making checking work quick and easy.
Freckle: The students have been using Freckle (formerly Frontrow.com) all year. This is a great site for math practice and reading/language arts. Many of the activities are adaptive, meaning the questions/practice provided adjusts to each student’s level. The site also has video explanations of how to complete tasks if students are unsure how to proceed. I highly recommend this site for summer review.
DigitWhiz: DigitWhiz is an online, games-based program aligned to the Common Core that guides kids ages 8+ to master key foundational skills in five areas: multiplication • division • integer operations • like terms • solving equations. It is a paid site, but you can get a 14 day free trial which might be the perfect amount!
4th Grade Interactive Math Skill Builders (can also link to 5th grade or higher)
Academic Skill Builders is a research-based and standards-aligned free educational math games and language arts games website that will engage, motivate, and help students improve their academic skills. There are many interactive games to choose from and they’re all pretty fun, have decent graphics/sound effects, and offer great practice to specific skills
Great math worksheets to print from this site.
