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 specific required math work over the summer for students entering kindergarten through 5th grade, we have created playful activities for students to review what they learned in math with their teacher this past school year. These are optional activities. Each includes things that may be done with family and friends. Just a few minutes thinking and talking about math every day will help keep math skills sharp!

Grade Level Activity Calendars

Grade level calendars of activities are provided for students based on the grade you will enter in the fall. These activities are intended to complement the content and skills for math classes. Print off a copy of the July and August calendars included in the links, check off the activities you complete, and bring in the calendars to share with your teacher in the fall.

Each attachment also includes book titles and websites that you can visit to play math games or practice mathematical concepts.

Additional online math resources and practice websites are also available on the Student Dashboard:

Students who were enrolled in South Windsor schools for the 2019-2020 school year will continue to have Dreambox access through the summer. This is a wonderful program that provides "just right" math content for students. Dreambox helps to review prior level materials if your child needs review on a skill, but it will also push into high level content if your child is ready for a challenge. Twenty minutes a day of Dreambox is a great option throughout the summer.
