The Cost of Learning Loss for Young Children
Why should parents be concerned about their children’s learning loss during the summer break? The summer brain drain is costly to parents and their children. This is especially true for elementary students who tend to lose one to six months’ worth of knowledge over the summer. Worse yet, the learning loss can be cumulative. Imagine the learning loss experienced by students by 12th grade.
It’s tempting to give our kids a mental break during the summer and worry about academics when school resumes. Why fix something that’s not a problem? Unfortunately, by the time we sense an academic issue, school is underway and moving forward at a rapid pace.
At ACE Tutoring, we often meet families who seek support for their students when they see a problem. Unfortunately, the academic issue occurred much earlier and only became evident when the students “hit a wall” or felt overwhelmed. A much better strategy would be using each summer to prepare for success in the fall. During the summer, students can plug in foundational skill gaps, review concepts missed during the past year, and preview courses for the upcoming school year. Visit www.acetutoring.com for summer camp programs, including Foundational Skills, Study & Organization Skills, Bridge Courses, and ACT/SAT Prep. We also have Middle School and High School Readiness Camps to help students transition confidently to 6th grade and 9th grade.
Please contact ACE Tutoring at 858-748-8873 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a complimentary academic skills assessment (value of $75). We will sit down with you to review the results and discuss the best strategy to help your children reach their potential!
