Students entering 8th grade can bridge the summer learning gap and continue to prepare for high school over the summer break with Summer Solutions 7th Grade Study Skills. All educational standards require children leaving seventh grade to read and comprehend nonfiction passages at grade level, write objective summaries of nonfiction text, and use context clues to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words. Using the summer workbook, students complete 30 lessons of mixed review over a 10-week period. This ongoing practice shores up literacy and study skills covered in 7th grade. Additional skills in the workbook include using graphic organizers and test taking strategies, developing organizational skills, interpreting visual information in charts, graphs, and time lines, solving analogies, recognizing cause/effect, note taking, outlining, and writing a report. By completing just one lesson three days a week, students enter 8th grade ready to begin learning new material right away. These summer workbooks include Help Pages and a complete answer key.
