Summer Learning Opportunities

Summer Learning: Reading and Math

With the assistance of MetaMetrics, the Wyoming Department of Education is combating summer learning loss by encouraging students to access free online tools designed to promote reading and maintain math skills during the summer break. Customized materials and implementation strategies to launch and enhance summer learning initiatives will be available in Wyoming. The summer learning initiative includes resources for summer reading and the Summer Math Challenge, a six-week email-based math maintenance program for students and their parents provided at no cost.

Summer Reading: “Find a Book”

The summer reading resources enable users to select books based on a student’s Lexile measure and interests. Educators, parents, and students can build custom lists and then locate their selections at the local public library.

Summer Math: The Summer Math Challenge

The Quantile Summer Math Challenge is a math skills maintenance program targeted to students who have just completed grade 1 through 8 and is designed to help students retain math skills learned during the previous school year.

For six weeks in the summer, parents who enroll their children in the program will receive daily emails with fun activities and links to educational resources.
