How to make the most of summer reading (infographic)

Reading books can prevent summer slide

Reading books is the best way to prevent summer slide – a decrease of achievement gains made during the previous school year.

Kids in Transition to School, an evidence-based program that provides a boost to children’s literacy, has released an infographic that lists tips on how to help kids exercise their reading muscles during summer.

The last tip, the one that shows how to pick up the book that’s suitable for the child’s level, is particularly interesting.

You can use the five finger rule. Let your child read the book. Hold up a finger every time she doesn’t recognize a word. If she gets to five fingers before finishing the page, the book may be too hard. Try to find an easier one.
