RIF Offers Summer Reading Resources

Prevent the Summer Slide!
Check Out Articles and Activities from RIF

Children who do not read over the summer will lose more than two months of reading achievement. Summer reading loss is cumulative. By the end of 6th grade, children who lose reading skills over the summer will be 2 years behind their classmates. 

Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) provides resources for parents and teachers to keep kids reading throughout the summer and beyond. On, you can find such articles as "Primer on Summer Learning Loss" and "Keeping Kids Off the Summer Slide," as well as ideas and activities for keeping kids reading this summer.
