Research has indicated that students do not retain the understanding of concepts and skills, which have been previously learned, over the summer months unless they are reviewed and practiced. In order to maintain those skills, Walpole Public Schools provides options for students to maintain their learning.
The Walpole Public Schools provides all students in grades 6-8 with Summer Math packets to be completed by students during their summer break. The topics assigned for each grade reflect the most important concepts that were covered throughout the year at the student’s previous grade level. Students will benefit from this summer review to prepare for the next grade level.
Our teachers have assembled helpful strategies, worksheets, challenge activities, and websites to review the topics taught during the past school year. You may access the Summer Math packets for each grade level using the links below.
We strongly suggest that your child pace him/herself by completing 1-2 worksheets each week. These activities can be done while traveling or during quiet time at home. This should not be a stressful activity, but a positive opportunity for children (and parents/guardians) to review basic math ideas.
As always, the Walpole Public Schools appreciates your high level of support for student learning and our efforts toward reaching our goals of academic achievement. We are available during the summer at the central office in Town Hall to assist with your questions.
