For many of you, school is out and summer is here. Yah!

But that also means summer learning loss. Boo.

According to Dr. Ruth Peters, “students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills during the summer months.” Yikes. And “all students experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.”

To prevent that from happening, Glenda Stewart-Smith of Surrey School District #36 in Canada put together this collection of iPhone and iPad apps to cover all kinds of mathematical concepts in fun and engaging ways. It’s perfect for going on the road and keeping your little ones busy and learning.

If you are an educator, pass these along to your students’ parents. If you are a parent, check these apps out.

What apps would you recommend to parents?

    TowerStorm is an APP that my kids can’t get enough of. Its math and literacy grades 2 and up. Free app download once you get a username from their website (www.dimensionu.com). My kids teachers use it all the time too. You should try it!
