Apple A Day's June Newsletter:
Slow the "Summer Slide" with Six Smart Summertime Strategies
By: Hope Stuart
As the excitement of the summer months approaches, our minds migrate toward family vacations, relaxed schedules and… no schoolwork. While summer is an absolutely fabulous time for kids, adults must be aware of a research-based phenomenon correlated with two months of literacy-based losses. This phenomenon is known as the “Summer Slide”.
June’s Apple A Day Way is devoted to informing parents/guardians about this phenomenon while suggesting activities that will ensure children experience summer literacy gains, not setbacks.
Keep in mind… your children aren’t destined to become “Summer Slide” statistics. After reading this newsletter, schedule a family meeting to discuss the “Summer Slide” while developing summer reading strategies; avoiding a summer slump.
Don’t let the “Summer Slide” impact your children’s minds. For more resources on summer reading, visit www.summerlearning.org and have a super summer reading like crazy!
