Research studies show that --
- reading loss occurs for most children when they are not in a formal learning environment or not engaged in any form of educational activities during the summer.
- students can have up to a 2-3 month loss in reading ability over summer.
So, in order to prevent this loss, students should read every day for at least 15-30 minutes each day.
- Grades K-2 Students: read 10 books
- Grades 3-5 Students: read 8 chapter books
