Avoid the “Summer Slide”
Summer slide is a term coined by the educational field to describe the loss of skills and knowledge over summer break. Reading and math skills are often negatively impacted. Fortunately, the reading “summer slide” is easy to curb — just read at least 20 minutes daily throughout the summer! Participating in a summer reading program, offered by your local library, is one way to stay motivated to read throughout the summer months!
