It's Almost Time for Summer Reading!

Tricia Fraser

Summer reading has a lot of benefits for your student. Read about some of them here!

Students who don't read over the summer often lose reading fluency and begin the next school year at a lower level than they were the previous spring. 

In contrast, those who do read continue to grow in their reading ability, vocabulary, and comprehension. They also grow in empathy and knowledge of the world. Summer reading helps to create the habit of reading for enjoyment which will help your student become lifelong learners. See the infographic below for more of the benefits of summer reading!
