What is Summer Slide? 
Summer Slide is when students lose up to 2 months of the learning that happened during the school year. Summer Slide happens when students do not engage in reading and math activities over the summer months when most children are not attending school.

Summer Thrive is when students continue to progress in their learning or maintain their learning because they practice reading and math over the summer. These children are exposed to learning experiences that they may not have had during the school year, such as visits to museums or zoos. Our goal is to help provide you with materials that can support summer learning for reading and math. 

We are so excited to be able to provide our first grade students with materials for summer learning! Each student who had parent approval received books on their reading level and a summer math notebook with manipulatives to play math games. Part of this program requires that parents attend our Summer Thrive Zoom meeting. Our meeting was Wednesday, May 27th at 6:30pm via Zoom.

Below are links to the Powerpoint presentation we used in the meeting, video explanations of how to play some games from each of the leveled math books, and links to play them online. Any student in K, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade is welcome to go to the Files and Documents page and print the Summer Math Books and use the links and videos below.  You may also visit Mrs. Palmer's Class Page and Mrs. Farrell's Class Page for additional resources.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Caden Palmer at palmercc@pwcs.edu for math related questions or Kathy Farrell at farrelkg@pwcs.edu for reading related questions.

Happy Learning!

Mrs. Palmer and Mrs. Farrell
