Summer Reading

Avoid Summer Slide

readFor some children, summer is a time dedicated to playing video games, sleeping in, vacationing and relaxing as much as possible before the beginning of another school year. Children may argue that summer should be spent taking a break from academics and enjoy doing nothing. As parents and educators we need to ensure that our children do not fall into what is commonly referred to as “summer slide.”

 

The summer slide: it sounds fun but it can make the transition from grade to grade really difficult. Research shows that students who do not read during the summer may experience a decrease in their reading level.

 

But guess what? Students who read regularly during the summer often improve their reading level and ability! MSPCS students can start strong in the fall if their reading habits don’t slide away during the summer months.
