OH MY GOSH!
Who’s ready to BEAT the summer slide?
What do I mean by Beat the Summer Slide? Just to explain in case you’ve never heard of the Summer Slide – this is referring to a decline in academic skills that CAN occur over the summer months when students aren’t using the skills they learned the previous year. This does NOT affect every student, but it is REAL… I’ve seen it time and time again. So… let’ do something about Beating the Summer Slide!
If you are wanting your students to continue learning throughout the summer, but you’re not sure what to give them to make that happen, I’ve got you covered!
Many moons ago, I would get a huge packet together for each of my students. I would load them up with pages and pages of “summer work”. Then I would encourage parents to let them play school. Believe it or not, I even went so far as to tell them if they brought it back to me the following school year (completed) I would give them a prize for a 2nd grader. I know… I was desperate to keep them learning. Now… I was at a VERY high-performing school, so I did get a lot of them bringing it back to me, but it still wasn’t 100%.
So… that got me thinking! Why not create something that the students could do digitally, and teachers didn’t have to prepare a THING! No work on your part. I will do it all for you! AND… IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK for the students!

I have a Summer Membership called Summer Boom Camp. From my own Boom Learning membership, I will assign decks to students for eleven weeks. I’ll track their data and assign new decks as they master skills. I’ve got several hundred decks that I’ve created for K and 1st, so they will have plenty of concepts to cover.
Well… if you know anything about me… I LOVE BOOM! The digital task cards are interactive, engaging, and give immediate feedback. No more waiting for a teacher to grade or check the work. Boom does it for us! No more waiting to see where a child is in the learning process. With a click of a button, I can see exactly how the students performed on each deck and on each card. It truly is amazing! Want to read more about Boom – click here.
