It’s been an incredible year.
You’ve worked hard.
Your readers have learned and stretched and grown.
But soon it’s time to turn them loose into that scary unpredictable space called summer!
Research shows that students who don’t read during the summer months may lose 2-3 months of the progress we’ve worked so hard to help them make. That means when they return in the fall, some of them will come back to school reading like they were in February or March the year before.
Every summer that slips by without reading increases the gap and further stacks the deck against already at-risk readers.
