Did you know that students over the summer often lose some of the knowledge they have learned earlier in the year? One study showed that students can lose about 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in math and can lose 1 month of grade level equivalency for all other subjects. A study showed 66% of teachers have to spend 3-4 weeks re-teaching students old material at the beginning of the school year. 24% of teachers spend at least 5 – 6 weeks re-teaching material from the previous year.
