Summer Math Fun!

Just because it’s summer does not mean Middle Schoolers can’t keep up their Math skills! Here are some options for you whether you will be just entering into 6th grade, or will be the leaders of the school in 8th grade!

St. John Summer BINGO Boards
Stop the summer slide! Complete one row of each bingo board over the summer to win a prize when school resumes in the fall!

Summer Solutions Workbook
Workbooks are a great way to keep your math skills fresh.  This workbook has a help section and the answers in the back.
Choose the Common Core version of your child’s current grade (2019/20 school year)
(Be aware – some students who have a challenging time with math do not like that each page covers a variety of topics. They may prefer a different workbook where each page is dedicated to a topic, such a dividing fractions)

Spectrum Math Workbook
This workbook focuses on one skill per lesson. I prefer this option for students that need to warm up or remember how to complete the steps in a problem.

*6th graders entering 7th grade only*
All 6th graders were given a gift by me – a workbook with a schedule attached! This is one more option for you!  Lost the schedule? Here it is again!
