Many schools have summer math or academic programs. For most public summer schools, students must be invited to participate, but talk to your child's teacher for information specific to your school district. If your child's district doesn't have summer school or your child doesn't qualify, you can check local private schools. Many of them have summer programs that include math and are open to any student.
If you can't get your child to a summer math program, let the summer math program come to you by way of online programs. The Leap Ahead! program, a system of daily online assignments and worksheets, is offered to students in third through sixth grade. It includes regular education and gifted education versions. Another option is Beestar, a progressive program of exercises in reading, math, vocabulary and social studies for grades one through seven.
