Summer vacation is just a few weeks away! It’s time to sleep in, play outside, relax and… read!
Did you know that 2 months of Reading skills are lost over the summer? It’s what teachers call the Summer Slide. On average, six weeks are spent in the Fall re-learning old material to make up for the skills that are lost during the summer. As parents, we can help prevent this learning loss by having our children spend 2 to 3 hours a week reading and learning.
One way to make reading fun during the summer is to track the number of books read with these printable Summer Reading Logs for June and July.
How To Use The Summer Reading Logs:
- Print the summer reading logs for June and July. (Click on the links to print)
- Hang the reading logs in a place where your child can see them everyday like on the refrigerator.
- After your child reads a book, have him or her color in a sun or star with a crayon, mark it off with a dot marker, or stick a sticker on it.
