Don't lose skills this summer!

Don't let the student in your family backslide this summer. Any reading comprehension, vocabulary skills, reading speed and writing skills they lose this summer will be an anchor around their academic achievement in the fall. This applies to students at all levels of education.

Students lose skills in the summer if they do not continue to read. Many students who have required summer reading wait until the end of summer to do it. That strategy keeps them from getting the most out of what they read if the have not been reading all summer. Students who have required summer reading should space it out over the summer instead of doing all at once the week before school starts. 

Parents who enable reading are making an investment in their child that can pay off later in college acceptances and scholarships. Encourage students in your family to read for pleasure all year. Made sure they make good use of a public library, bookstore or electronic reader in the summer. If they are reading at their grade level, they will continue to grow their vocabulary, spelling skill and writing skill as well as their reading speed and comprehension.
