Summer Math

Whether you relax, explore, or seek adventure over the summer, we encourage you to continue to see math in the world around you. While there is no required math work over the summer for students entering kindergarten through 5th grade, we have created playful activities to review what you learned in math with your teacher this past school year. These are optional activities. Each includes things that you may do with family and friends - just a few minutes thinking and talking with math every day will help keep your skills sharp.

You are welcome to print off a copy of the July and August calendars, check off the activities you complete, and bring in the calendars to share with your teacher in the fall. We have also included book titles and websites that you can visit to play math games or practice mathematical concepts if you would like. Please see the links to the right on this page to locate the activities for the grade you are entering in the fall.
