As the semester is winding down, educators, students, and parents are starting to make plans for the summer. Research shows that summer learning loss happens, which we sometimes call the “summer slide.” There is also research that shows it can be prevented.
Students may lose up to two whole months of reading proficiency during the summer when they are out of practice. Teachers and parents may feel pressure to keep up with the rhythm of learning over the summer, though they have less time and resources at their fingertips. Even with a summer school program in place, the school day is shorter, which can decrease the impact that skills practice might otherwise have.
