What is Summer Slide?

Summer slide is the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the school year. Students can lose an average of one to two months of learning over the summer!

Reading at Home

Children learn to love the sound of language before they even notice the existence of printed words on a page. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. When the rhythm and melody of language become a part of a child’s life, learning to read will be as natural as learning to walk and talk.

Let us Help with Simple Rhymes, Songs, etc. You can do at home with your kids!
