Here are 9 ways to beat the summer slide by motivating students to read:
Create a summer tutoring program with easy-to-use teaching resources. Play games like these and have fun!
Principal Amy Williams Reyna wrote her ideas, and they are great!
We have a summer reading program four days a week and students can come read in the school library and take AR tests on the genre challenge books. Each week there is a fun program and activities for them as well.
Another principal shared how they increase summer reading at her high school:
We plan to use Penny Kittle’s approach—teachers sign up to promote a book of their choice and hold a one-hour discussion at a designated location.
And other schools use these great summer reading ideas:
Ms. Gaines encourages her school to read over the summer in Kirbyville Elementary’s Summer Reading program designed to help students maintain or increase their reading levels.
