The ‘Summer Slide’ – Keeping up Reading

If you google the phrase ‘Summer Slump’ or ‘Summer Slide’ you will see how research shows that children can slip back academically over the summer holidays. Children who don’t read during summer can slip back by two to three months in their reading achievement. For the last number of years Wicklow Libraries have run a Summer Reading Challenge at Greystones Library. GREAT NEWS! It is running again this year starting on 14th June. This is a wonderful opportunity to keep up reading over the summer and avoid the ‘Summer Slide.’
