The impact Summer Reading Programs has on stopping the summer slide is clear. As libraries across the world work to transform not only lives, but also themselves, consider the difference you could make by throwing in a little math and science to your Summer Reading Program.  Tutor.com has tools that can help and they fit especially well in this year’s theme of fitness for SRP.  Our math packets provide eight weeks of challenge questions for elementary, middle school and high school levels. Our science packets have six hands-on projects spanning a wide range of topics for 3rd-12th graders. As a Tutor.com partner library, there is no cost to you to download the packets.  Just visit our special Summer Program page to view our Summer Math Challenges and Summer Science Pack. Encourage your 1st through 12th grade summer reading participants to keep their STEM brains (or brain STEMS?) fit over summer.
 
Also, as students wind down the school year, testing becomes more fierce. Students are facing state standardized tests, spring ACT/SAT dates, AP® Tests and final exams. A quick newsletter article or email blast could save them from a breakdown. We also have a Test Stress flyer and simple tweets can go a long way. Visit the Client Resource Center to view these and over 100 other tools for promotion.
