Summer break can lead to children losing or forgetting the skills they learned during the school year, according to the study The Effects of Summer Vacation on Achievement Test Scores: A Narrative and Meta-Analytic Review.
Today more than ever we have to avoid the summer slide, so it’s especially important to keep the learning process going throughout the summer to keep your child from falling behind. This potential setback frequently referred to as ‘summer reading loss’.
Reading time is one of the best predictors of a child’s comprehension level, vocabulary range, and reading speed. The more reading a student does (whether it’s over the summer or during the school year), the more opportunity he or she has to build and strengthen these skills.
If the summer months usually affect these skills, what additional impact can we expect this year when schools have been closed since March due to the COVID-19 crisis?
