How to Prevent Summer Learning Loss, or ‘Summer Slide’

On average, students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in math over the summer. Some students also lose more than two months in reading achievement, but parents can help change that.

Keep those minds on fire this summer with math, literacy and enrichment activities to keep your K-6th grader engaged all summer long. Join us Tuesday, May 21 from 6:30-8 pm at The Anderson School, for engaging, hands-on math activities, writing and critical thinking strategies and sample Mind Sports that you and your child can enjoy this summer.

Panelists:

Nathan Levy, president of the New Jersey Association of Gifted Children (NJAGC), applies his experience from more than 30 years as a teacher, principal, author, education consultant and speaker, to his engaging workshops designed to promote higher order critical thinking skills.

Milos Scekic, the renowned chess coach and chess master, teaches mind sports and chess, in addition to designing programs for schools that have included The Speyer Legacy School, NEST + M, Lower Lab, Special Music School, Horace Mann, P.S. 163 and P.S. 116.  His programs integrate technology and explore the history of chess and its great masters. He developed a full curricular chess program designed to foster higher-level thinking skills such as pattern recognition, spatial visualization, analysis and strategic thinking and problem solving. Milos has many international titles to his credit and remains the record holder for the youngest National Master title in Yugoslavia chess history which he won at the age of 14.

Frances Stern, the author of “Adding Math, Subtracting Tension: A Guide to Raising Children Who Can Do Math,” holds a master’s degree in mathematics and has been teaching math and math pedagogy to teachers of pre-kindergarten through grade eight for more than twenty years, working in both public and private schools and at NYU.  During a career as a systems analyst, she was inspired to change fields after advising teachers at her children’s school and being recruited by parents to teach them math.
