Why I Decided To Place My Kids In A Summer Math Program

 

There is so much that I love about summer. The end of school team sports and other school activities means more time to spend quality time together as a family. Travel, movie nights, and other fun-filled moments for bonding and sharing, without constantly checking the clock for bedtimes. It truly is one of my most favorite times of the year.

However, one thing that I always have to make sure of as a mom is that all of the learning done throughout the school year does not get lost in the fun of summer. I find ways to incorporate learning in a variety of ways while school is not in session. One of those ways is finding fun summer learning programs for the kids to do online on the days that it is too hot and humid to be outdoors.

This is especially important this summer for my daughter Lady T and my son Manny in the area of math. Manny struggled in math when school started. While he made good progress throughout the year, I want him to continue to work on math this summer so that he is more confident in the subject as he enters third grade in the fall.

Lady T performed well in math this year. However when it came time for her to test for math placement for eight grade, her results were disappointing. She was hoping to place in Algebra, but her scores landed her in standard eight grade math instead.

When I found out about the TenMarks Summer Math Program, it was like an answered prayer. The online math program is designed for students completing grade 1 through Geometry and Algebra 2, helping build their math foundation and skills over the summer break at their own pace and time.

Both Lady T and Manny have found the TenMarks Summer Math Program not only easy to use, but also engaging. What I love most is that the program addresses their individual learning needs by reviewing concepts from the previous year, and introducing new concepts to them for the year ahead. The kids have said that they love how the embedded hints and video lessons to refresh what they already know, while simultaneously learning new material to help them be better prepared for the upcoming school year. I also love how I can check in on their progress through my parent account, and even create customized incentives and rewards for them like a family fun night, new toys or books, or a pizza night out on the town.

Data from 2014 showed that the TenMarksSummer Math Program helped reverse summer learning loss for over 69% of participating students—in just 8 weeks, with one-hour of use per week, students tested at the beginning of the program and then again at the end of the program averaged 11% increase in scores.

Keeping ‘summer brain drain’ at bay is something that is just as important – if not more important – as making sure my kids have a fun summer vacation. Giving them a program that they can use to retain and improve their math skills with just 60 minutes each week — whether we’re at home or on-the-go – is great! The that the TenMarksSummer Math Program not only helps them to feel more secure math, it also helps me to feel more at ease knowing that when back-to-school time arrives, they’ll be academically ready.
