not just reading but all skills tend to decline over summer if kids don't keep their brains engaged. that's why schools spend the first few weeks of school rehashing what the kids learned the previous year, at least in elementary school. there are many summer workbooks out to aide in keeping their brains active.
Thank-goodness my dd's like to read during summer break
my mom had me make copies and read and stuff every summer in the morning ever day, and then we had the rest of the day to play.
I believe it!
We do this with our kids
Quoting LifeCafe42:I always did the library summer reading program they would give out awards for books read
My boys are doing the library reading program this summer.
my boys have to read as they have a report due the first week back to school over the book they read during summer break !! but generally my boys like reading !
