10 tips for summer learning from Sal Khan, founder and CEO of Khan Academy


  • Check in with your teacher before the end of the school year to find out what they recommend.
  • If you're considering a summer program at your school district or a summer camp, look for a mix of academic and fun learning activities. Research shows summer learning is most effective when academics are coupled with activities like art, dance or sports.

    Your school district may call these "enrichment" activities. Many districts have expanded their free summer offerings, and they often include transportation, breakfast and lunch.
  • If you're not enrolling in a formal summer program, make the most of the mornings at home when kids are the freshest.?
  • Show them how to start the day with a small win by making their beds. Yes, change out of PJ's.
  • After breakfast, spend 15 minutes on math and 15 minutes on reading.
  • With math, look for online programs that are tailored to your child and that take the burden off you. Many are free.
  • Take small bites and celebrate small wins.
  • In the afternoons, if possible plan outdoor learning outings to parks, zoos, gardens, etc.?
  • Encourage passion projects. Kids are excited to work on things they love.
  • And finally, remember summer should be restorative. Kids have been through a lot. Bring out the joy.
