Preventing summer slide is on the mind of every teacher I know...especially when we compare reading Spring scores to what students are performing at come Fall!
I'm a huge advocate of summer reading. Its a simple fact that reading over the summer helps prevent summer slide. The problem is, not many students have the intrinsic motivation to read on their own.
To help my students keep growing their brains over the summer, I put together a packet to use with my students to encourage summer reading. It walks students through thinking about how to make a summer plan, and then set a goal & track it over the summer!
