Why Is Summer Reading So Important for Kids' Success?
Reading over summer vacation may not be a priority for children, but parents and teachers should make it one. Why? Summer reading is critical to a child's ability to not only retain information learned the previous year, but also to grow in knowledge and critical thinking skills for the coming year.
A University of Tennessee, Knoxville research study shows that children who don't read over the summer lose at least two months of reading development. This is often referred to as 'the summer slide' or the 'summer learning loss.' On the other hand, students who do read over the summer may gain a month of proficiency in reading. Reading over the summer is not a suggestion to keep kids busy; it's a critical requirement to help students stay on track for their entire educational career and beyond.
MGSD AND THE MOORESVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY HAVE PARTNERED UP!
The Mooresville Public Library and Mooresville Graded School District have partnered up so our students can have access to the public libraries resources. Students can now use their Power School number to have access to the public library. See the image below for more information on the Mooresville All Access Card.
