Summer Reading Edition

The Summer Slide

Research shows that children who do not read over the summer, lose up to 3 months of their reading growth. They begin the next school year behind and need to catch up with peers. Over several years, this summer slide can have a significant impact on reading level and it becomes more and more challenging to catch up.

The bottom line: children need to read over the summer.
