What is the summer reading slide?
Some of you may have heard of the summer reading slide while that may be a completely new term for some of you. The summer reading slide is the idea that students that do not continue to practice reading or math facts tend to lose about two months worth of instruction. However, there are many ways we try to combat this issue. Students will be coming home with a summer folder that details more information on the summer slide as well as some activities that they can complete.
Below are a few links if you would like to learn more about the summer slide.
