Summer Reading

Have you heard of the “summer slide”? Unfortunately, it’s not the fun kind of slide you’ll find at a water park or playground. This slide is different. It’s a slide that no parent wants their child to ride. The summer slide is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn’t in session. Numerous studies show that kids who don’t read during summer vacation actually slip in reading ability by the time autumn rolls around. In order to avoid this, keep your children learning all summer long by provide opportunities throughout the summer to keep kids’ academic skills sharp. There are many ways to do this AND have fun in the process. Use this link to find some great ideas: https://henricoschools.us/summer-reading/
