While school will soon be out, it is not the time for learning to stop.
- For little ones, summer is filled with teachable moments and opportunities to read aloud.
- For school age children, summer can be a dangerous slide that erodes knowledge built over the school year or summer can be a time to make gains in knowledge, stimulate imaginations and build enthusiasm for learning by reading and reading aloud.
New Seize the Summer Campaign Materials
Read Aloud recently released new Seize the Summer campaign materials are now available in English and Spanish in their Partner Toolkit. Two new posters, a parent handout and a bookmark can be used by The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading to help remind parents to read aloud every day and to take advantage of the summer programs offered at their local public library.
Read Aloud is proud to partner with the Collaborative Summer Learning Program (CSLP) in promoting summer learning programs at libraries all across our nation. Please make a special effort to share our parent handout developed with CSLP with the parents your organization reaches before the end of the school year. Libraries offer great summer programs for all ages!
