Important General Studies Information
Each teacher has made suggestions for summer work in order to reinforce the skills that were focused on during the school year. In addition, the teachers made specific, individualized recommendations on the report cards. It is important to spend time reviewing these skills over the summer in order to make sure that the students are prepared for the upcoming school year.
In addition to the individual recommendations made by the teachers, there are three suggestions I’d like to offer:
As a school, we work thoughtfully to balance an investigative problem-solving approach with skill practice. Summer work is focused on students’ maintaining basic math skills. IXL (www.ixl.com) has provided excellent opportunities for our students to practice the skills they have learned in class, and we feel confident that summer use will help students keep their skills sharp.

Targeted Practice Based on MAP Testing Results
The following link: https://www.khanacademy.org/mappers contains a document that correlates MAP® sub-goals and RIT ranges to Khan Academy® exercises. The Khan exercises are interactive problems for students with instant feedback. Feel free to download the document for the appropriate grade range. NWEA plans to work with Khan Academy to update these links twice a year as new exercises are developed. Use the RIT ranges found on your MAP scoring sheet to determine which exercises your child should work on.
