Summer Reading Adventures
Studies show that children who do not read or have access to books during the summer lose up to 2 months of reading performance. Those losses accumulate during the elementary school years so that by the time a child enters middle school he/she may be 2 ½ years behind! All children, whether from low, middle or upper income families, may fall victim to the “summer slide” if not provided with summer reading opportunities. So, how do we prevent the summer slide-or even accelerate reading growth? Join us for our Summer Reading Adventures! This is a YouTube channel that will provide an opportunity for students to hear stories being read to them throughout the summer. Each week, a new book will be uploaded with a special guest reader. Students will enjoy tuning in to find out who is reading and where they are! You can find the link at the Hart County Charter System website. Every book is an adventure just waiting to be discovered. Come join us as we explore this universe of stories! Are you ready?
