The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) has a challenge for you! The summer learning slide is a reality that many students deal with each year. One summer off can sometimes mean a whole school year of struggling academic performance. In an effort to keep students active and engaged all summer long, we have compiled a series of reading and math activities for students and launched the Summer Reading and Math Challenge. The WVDE has created a webpage, which includes tools and resources you can use to encourage students to read and practice their math skills. The challenge to keep children reading and doing math this summer is part of the West Virginia Department of Education's ongoing efforts to improve student achievement.
