SMART FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME - CURB THE SUMMER SLIDE
As you and your children “slide” into summer, don’t let “The Summer Slide” rob your children of the reading and learning achievement.
Fort Worth ISD’s coordinated cradle-to-career literacy strategy, 100x25FWTX, stresses that students who are “ready to read” will also be “ready to lead.”
Many academic studies conclude that children who don’t continue their reading through the summer months will actually lose reading skills by the beginning of the next school years just a few, short months away.
Parents, you can help stop the summer slide by adding just twenty minutes of reading into your child’s day!
