"A conservative estimate of lost instructional time is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of the school year.... It's common for teachers to spend at least a month re-teaching material that students have forgotten over the summer."

National Summer Learning Association

 "The researchers concluded that two-thirds of the 9th grade reading achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities during elementary school. This achievement level is a huge determinant of whether students stay in school and follow a college-preparatory track."

Johns Hopkins University Researchers
Karl Alexander, Doris Entwisle, and Linda Olson (2007)

"Out of readers who were proficient at the end of third grade, almost all 96% graduated high school. However, students who don't read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave high school without a diploma."

Summer Boost

The so-called "summer slide" is particularly problematic for kids who are already struggling with reading; if you don't want to risk your child losing ground over the summer, it's important to make sure your child has opportunities to practice still-tentative reading skills. The good news is that summer doesn't need to stall your child's progress, and it can even be an opportunity to gain reading fluency and enthusiasm!
