Sign the Summer Reading Pledge

What Is the Summer Slide?

As schools close for the season, many kids are at risk of falling behind because of the Summer Slide. This means they can lose up to three months worth of reading progress, thus creating a setback that could hinder their learning by the time the next school year comes.

Preventing learning loss is possible through summer enrichment programs, and it can even be as simple as taking time to read every day. Committing to a few minutes of reading will give kids magnified benefits in the long run.

The Hoot Reading Community is dedicated to supporting readers of all ages. We believe that with proper guidance and a committed reading time, children can significantly improve their literacy skills and more.

This summer is a perfect time to keep the learning momentum going. Take the Summer Slide Reading Pledge with us, and let’s encourage friends and family to do the same!
