DID YOU KNOW?                                                                                          During the summer months, all children are at risk of losing some of the learning obtained during the school year. This is especially true for children from low-income families.

 • More than 80 percent of children from economically disadvantaged    communities lose reading skills over the summer because they  lack access to books, learning resources, and such enrichment            opportunities as trips to the library, bookstore, or museum.

 • Students who lose reading ability over the summer rarely catch up. 

• Over time, the summer learning slide can add up to the equivalent of three years of reading loss by the end of fifth grade.
