Summer Learning Activities

San Diego Unified School District
Parent Outreach and Engagement Department

Summer Learning Activities on the Web
Kindergarten • Elementary • Middle School • High School

How To Make Summer (Learning) Fun
Your students can be learning over the summer vacation with these fun activities from the web. School will soon be out and students will start summer
vacation. According to Dr. Harris Cooper, University of Missouri-Columbia, when students return to school after a long summer vacation, they've lost one to three months worth of learning. Students lose more in math than reading. How can parents minimize "summer learning loss" when their kids are not in school? Parents can engage students in a variety of fun activities to reinforce learning.

The Parent Outreach and Engagement Department has collected a variety of summer activities for students in grades K-12 to beat the heat and keep them busy and learning all summer long. In addition, schools may want to prepare summer learning packets for students to use at home. Families can visit the web all summer to find new activities posted weekly. Some activities are available in Spanish. Remember to keep it fun!

For more information email us at or call (619) 293-4431.
Available online June 10, 2009!
