Why Read in the Summer?


http://fairwoodptsa.org/Page/Programs/Reading%20Summer%202018

Avoid the "Summer Slide"! 

You should try to find time to read each and every day. Research shows students who read during the summer improve or maintain their reading skills. Kids who don't read at all see their skills slip as much as an entire grade level (Heyns 1978). More recent research based on MAP Growth has found that the summer slide increases from elementary level to middle school (*Kuhfeld 2018).
