Prevent the Summer Slide: Keep Your Students Reading!

Camp Book It!

As the school year has wrapped up, it's important to keep our students engaged in learning to prevent the "summer slide"—the loss of academic skills over the summer break. One of the best ways to keep your students' minds active is by encouraging them to read regularly.

Here’s a fantastic way to keep your students reading this summer:
