• Summer Reading


    "Summer reading loss refers to the decline in children's reading development that can occur during summer vacation times when children are away from the classroom and not participating in formal literacy programs" (Allington & McGill-Franzen, 2003). 

    Researchers have uncovered evidence to suggest that the impact of summer reading loss on students in general, and on at-risk students in particular, is significant. If students read a minimum of six to eight books in the summer, they dramatically decrease the summer reading loss. Please encourage your students to read this summer. It will make a difference!
    Please find the recommended book list for your child's grade level. All of these books are available at your local Carnegie Library.
