“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.”
So if any of my incoming Firsties are checking out my blog, get reading little ones! I don't care if you are reading books, magazines, video game directions, box labels or what....just READ something every day.
I can't wait to meet all of you in September.....OK, I can wait because I love summertime, but I am looking forward to meeting you when the time comes. There that's the real truth! I swear!
