letters that spell out "read"

Many children, especially struggling readers, forget some of what they’ve learned or slip out of practice during the summer months. Use these resources to help your reader improve their reading during the summer and beyond.

Reading during the summer continues to support the advancement of literacy and academic performance by fostering a love of reading. Our model emphasizes:

  • Reading for enjoyment
  • Learning to select motivating and engaging texts
  • Becoming a reader with broader interests
  • Developing into lifelong readers

Families can support this goal by encouraging reading, providing access to texts, and helping students to find regular time to read.
