Over the summer students can lose academic gains made during the school year, and research shows that summer learning losses can accumulate each year, influencing reading proficiency. While students tend to progress at the same rate during the school year, over the summer more than 80 percent of children from economically-disadvantaged families lose reading skills.
That is why NCECF has updated our Summer Learning Toolkit, created especially for program providers! The easy-to-use tools can help program staff understand the importance of summer learning so they can communicate effectively with parents. The toolkit comes with a short presentation and talking points, Facebook posts, text messages, a fact sheet, a template for Summer Learning Week stickers and more!
Be a Summer Learning Ambassador today and make plans to celebrate Summer Learning Week from July 8-13, 2019. Download the toolkit here.
