Summer reading. . . engages and excites youngsters as it raises literacy levels.
New York State Education Commissioner David Steiner
The research is clear that children who don’t read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect. Readingrockets.org
In a 2009 government web cast, U. S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan described summer learning loss as “devastating.” This is what researchers have often referred to as the “summer slide.” nysl.nysed.gov
Your students are already hooked on technology. Now you can harness that energy to prevent the summer slide that causes them to shed their skills. Encourage them to read every day, to track their reading and be rewarded every time they read with The Reading Game.
