Waging War Against The Student Summer Reading Slump

Summer break is quickly approaching and as we anticipate a much needed break we are reminded of the annual war waged against our students: the Summer Reading Slump.  How can we help students fight the battle and come out on top next fall?  Below are some ideas, articles, and resources that any school leader or teacher can use to help arm parents and students with a plan of attack to keep their fluency and comprehension active.

There are so many opportunities and resources available to our students to help them claim victory over the Summer Reading Slump!  Do you have some of your own to share…  Fight on!
