There are usually pages in the math workbooks that are not completed. These are excellent practices. Many are cumulative review pages and can be used to review and master skills that were taught during the year. The level of problem solving in our math curriculum is high, so doing these is the best practice for the math they will be working on in the next school year. This is a great paper and pencil review and can be done 10-15 minutes at a time over the summer.
