Summer Learning: Sailing to September
Summer Learning 2020
Wilton Public Schools is pleased to provide students an opportunity to engage in reading and learning throughout the summer. We recognize that our students have endured the challenges of nearly three months of school closure and eLearning due to COVID-19. Hence, we are providing resources for both online and non-tech experiences. Whether a student is home on a rainy day, needs a great book for a day in the sun, or just wants to practice math, science or technology skills, our program includes resources for students and families. The components of the Summer Learning program include the following:
1) Wilton Public Schools Summer Reading 2020
(Use the "full screen' option in the bottom right-hand corner to see the entire booklet)
It's important that you check with each school for any special requirements.
- Middlebrook - there are no specific title requirements (so enjoy) - however, students should read at least three books during the summer.
- WHS - English Department summer work/reading assignments
- Directions for eBooks Access - Sora App (eBooks, Audio Books) (Directions)
Thanks to all who collaborated on curating the list of eBooks and resources including our Library Learning Commons staff, the Wilton Library Teen and Children's Librarians and our teachers of reading, writing, and English.
2) Math Summer Learning
The Math, Science and Technology practice section below includes a variety of links to practice STEM skills. Included are summer work opportunities for students finishing 6th and 7th grade. There is a packet available as well as IXL practice. The summer work is optional; however, we do encourage students to continue to practice their mathematical skills over the summer.
Suggested practice tools:
- IXL Summer Review for students entering 6th Grade
- IXL Summer Review for students going into Math 7 and Pre-Alg 7, and Alg 7
- IXL Summer Review for students going into Pre-Alg 8, Geo 8, and Alg 8
- Khan Academy (grade-level appropriate practice)
3). District-Provided Devices (Chromebooks)
If students have a district-provided device at home, they should keep it for the summer and use it to access eBooks and online resources. There will be instructions at the beginning of next year for procedures on returning devices.
4). Rainy Day and Family Fun Activities & Resources
