 In order to keep their math skills, children must practice. Many children don't want to think about math during the summer. Here are some ways you can sneak in some fun math practice. Students tend to forget what they learned during the school year if they don’t practice it during the summer. Starting the new school year becomes tougher because they basically have to spend precious learning time re-learning old concepts. This is particularly true in the case of math and reading. However, there are some sneaky ways you can have your child practicing math during their summer vacation without using a notebook to complete equations.

Summer Math Activities

Grocery Math

Take your child grocery shopping with you and ask them to use math to calculate prices. For instance, if you’re buying cake flour for $2.49 a box, ask them how much it would be for four boxes. Give them a small budget and tell them to gather all the ingredients for a complete meal while staying within the budget.

Boardgames

Boardgames are a great way to bond and practice some math on the sly. Monopoly or any other game that involves counting money can be an obvious choice. Even Scrabble is great math (and vocabulary) practice since they have to count the letters and the points they earn.

Music

Learning to play a musical instrument is actually a great way to practice math. Musical training helps with pattern recognition, memory, sequencing, and attention skills. All of this learning can also help in other subjects. And who knows, maybe you'll have a musical prodigy…or at least a fun time.
