#mysummerwvlearning County Grants (funded by the WVDE)
Reading books that are of interest, along with writing, drawing, and using math, are important summer activities that can help minimize and even eliminate the learning losses that often occur during the summer months. As a result, the WVDE Office of Early & Elementary Learning is excited to announce a grant program to help counties support children’s use of reading, writing, drawing, and mathematics during the summer months. The launch of this program will encourage children to
read, draw, write (or dictate),
use math during the summer,
allow counties the opportunity to provide children exiting Grades Pre-k -11 with resources (ex.: books, journals, services, etc…).
Each county received $2,600 from the WVDE to assist with these efforts.

Pre-K—Grade 12 County/School Summer Math Challenges
Counties and/or schools are encouraged to develop their own summer math challenges to help increase children’s use of mathematics over the summer months. Funding (Division of Teaching & Learning, Title 1, Step 7-A, etc.) may be used to assist with these efforts.
