Succeed by getting them to Read in August
Dear parents and guardians,
I hope you and your family
enjoying the summer break and had a great July. With school starting in
four weeks, I write to ask you to make sure your child reads to avoid
the dreaded summer slide. Here’s why.
- Children who read over the summer
gain a month in their reading level.
- Children who do not read over the
summer may lose 3 months or more in their reading level.
- This leads to a 4 month spread in
reading level at the beginning of the next year between kids who read
and kids who don’t.
- That’s almost half of a school
year! It’s unlikely that children that have not been reading will be
able to make up that loss.
- By the end of 6th grade, children
haven’t been reading over the summers have a three year deficit in
reading in comparison to children who do read in the summer.
- 80% of difficulty in reading at
grade 6 is attributable to lack of summer reading.
- Children who read with someone
summer and talked with someone about what they had read made the
greatest gains in reading at the end of the summer.
- Volume is important. The more a
reads, the better they get at it. Like any sport, you must keep
practicing if you are going to get better. When you don’t practice you
get out of shape.
- More reading can make up for
reading deficiencies. “Kids who read a lot, read a lot better.”
This information came
from Dr. Richard Allington, past president of the International Reading
Association, who spoke about “Why Summer Reading Is Important.”
Thanks also to Mr. Jim
Montanari, principal of Salisbury Elementary School, who posted this on
the school’s web site and has encouraged us to share.
