Summer Reading

Grades 6-8

As summer approaches, I thought we’d take a few moments to discuss the importance of maintaining solid reading habits over the summer. Much of the research around summer reading suggests that students can lose more than two months of academic progress if they do not continue to read during summer months. Taking trips with your student to the library, listening to audiobooks in the car, and discussing the books you are reading together are some of the ways you can continue to help your student develop life-long reading habits.
