Avoid the “Summer Slide!” Loss of Reading and Writing Skills
After working throughout the year to maintain good grades, why do some students tend to lose some of the knowledge they gained during the school year? It all depends on how strong their working memory is. Some students have a working memory filled with strategies that they have mastered. But other students may have a weak working memory. This means that they will forget concepts that were learned during the school year.
The summer slide is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn’t in session. Numerous studies show that kids who don’t read during summer vacation actually slip in reading ability by the time autumn rolls around. The best way to prevent the “Summer Slide” is to KEEP LEARNING ALL SUMMER LONG.
