Scary data about “summer reading”!

June 6, 2011 29 comments

“What we know is that children who do not read in the summer lose two to three months of reading development while kids who do read tend to gain a month of reading proficiency,” Allington said. “This creates a three to four month gap every year. Every two or three years the kids who don’t read in the summer fall a year behind the kids who do.”

Read the full article here.

Wow! That is scary stuff, but it is also very true. Students who read as a habit, who read for fun and relaxation, do tend to progress MUCH quicker that students who don’t.

I never go anywhere without a book.

So, what will you read this summer? Make yourself a book list. Then, get those books and make sure they are always in your backpack wherever you go in the holiday. You should always be able to pick up a good book whenever you have a bit of spare time. You can check to see what books are available in the bookshops here:

Make a comment to tell us your book list for the summer. Also, tell us where and when you will probably do most of your reading.
