It is often the case that the students return to the classroom after the long summer break, having forgotten what they had learned the previous academic year. This phenomenon, known as the “summer slide,” is possible, and maybe magnified by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, say educators and parents. This is a concern to parents!
“Summer slide,” then, refers to the loss of academic achievement vacation-time. Research shows that students retain 70 percent of what they learned in Language Arts the previous year after the summer break − and about 50 percent of what they learned in Math.
To avoid learning loss, the development of a routine summer schedule that integrates standard academic activities is essential. Although giving students unlimited free time is potentially simpler – and due to pandemic constraints, with the lack of organized activities.
