Summer should be a time for children to have fun and relax. But research has shown that summertime is when children can lose much of the educational progress they made during the school year.
The National Summer Learning Association says "A conservative estimate of lost instructional time is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of the school year.” The NSLA also cites over a century of studies showing that typical children score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer than they did on the same test at the beginning of summer.
How can you stop the “summer slide” without turning summer into a bummer? By making reading just as much fun as a video game or a trip to the pool.
