Reading is a super power!

According to the National Education Association, having kids read a lot is one of the crucial components of becoming a super reader. Young readers need to become practiced at recognizing letters and sounds. The only way to get good at it is to practice. 

What’s the big deal about reading over the summer?
According to the children’s literacy organization Reading is Fundamental (RIF), experts have found that “children who read during the summer gain reading skills, while those who do not often slide backward.”   So instead of losing knowledge and skills during the summer months, kids who participate in reading programs actually show gains!  Also, summer reading loss is cumulative. Children don’t “catch up” in the fall because the other children are moving ahead with their skills.  So summer reading is a big deal!

More information:
Check out this great flyer from Read Aloud 15 MINUTES about the importance of reading during the summer months.  We have it available in English and Spanish.  Parents - you are your child's most important teacher, so Seize the Summer!
