Student Summer Academics
I am very excited about this opportunity for our students and hope that you will take full advantage of the program.
This summer Natick will once again provide a great summer academics program for students and families. It is important to understand that academic skills and concepts are like anything else in life. The more we practice, the greater our skill and ability. The summer academics program is designed to support families in providing this critical practice over the summer vacation.
The summer academics program provides a daily “workout” that outlines a routine covering reading, writing, math, and strategic thinking skills. The outline is general and allows parents and children a degree of flexibility in determining how they complete the workout. For each content area (reading, writing, mathematics, and strategic thinking skills) we provide a great list of resources that families can use as a starting place for selecting activities. Once selected, these activities can be used to complete the workout for the day.
Two of our primary resources are Khan Academy and Raz Kids. Khan Academy uses student Google credentials to log in.
