A Note from Nurse Bono
Don't let your brain turn to mush over summer! Choose a great book and start reading. Here are some valuable advantages to summer reading:
- Children who have easy access to books read more books. The more children read, the better their fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
- When young people aren’t engaged in educational activities during the summer, they experience learning loss.
- Reading just 5 books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss.
- In a study of fourth graders, the students who read for fun every day scored the highest on reading assessment tests.
- Summer reading loss is cumulative. By the end of 6th grade, children who consistently lose reading skills over the summer will be two years behind their classmates.
- Students who participated in a summer reading program had better reading skills at the end of third grade and scored higher on standardized tests than students who did not participate.
