Summer Reading: The Benefits Last Throughout the Year
(NC)-Researchers have found that students generally score lower on standardized tests at the end of the summer than they do at the beginning. With this in mind, why not provide your child with a fun way to maintain their skills and enroll them in a summer reading club?
Summer reading clubs are popping up at libraries across the country as a popular pastime for children of all ages. Most teachers would agree there are many advantages to encouraging kids to enjoy summer reading. Here are a few reasons why you should consider enrolling your child in a summer reading club:
1. Maintaining Performance
Reading just six books during the summer has the potential to keep a struggling reader from regressing. Parents should be mindful of their child's reading level when choosing books. Libraries often run summer reading programs that provide guidance, such as the award-winning TD Summer Reading Club that has over 250,000 children participate each year.
2. Improving Performance
Summer reading can help improve literacy levels, giving children the opportunity to return to school in September with further advanced reading skills. The majority of reading club participants, librarians, and parents believe summer reading programs result in improved reading performance.
3. Learning Confidence
It makes sense that a child with good reading skills will have higher confidence to continue with reading activities, both at school and at home. Participation in group reading clubs not only improves reading confidence, it can increase a child's social confidence as a result of enjoying entertaining interaction with others.
