Include Reading Time in Your Summertime Fun!
You may have heard the term ”use it or lose it.” This holds true for students with learning differences during their summer vacation. Summer learning loss can set kids back 2-3 months!
To avoid the summer “brain drain”, if your child is in tutoring or educational therapy sessions, be sure to maintain consistency with your weekly sessions and practice. If you are not in tutoring sessions, consider picking back up over the summer to refresh your child’s skills, prevent any learning loss, and even pick up momentum!
Summer reading plans can also provide reluctant readers with motivation to complete the books and collaborate with other students. Make a schedule that includes a daily reading time of 20-30 minutes. To help, Start With a Book is a great website that offers parents age-appropriate book choices and fun activities to keep things interesting. Check it out here!
