Prevent Summer Learning Loss


Information about the summer slide presented by Winnequah Elementary School teachers and guidelines for summer reading presented by Monona Library Youth Services Staff.

Summer learning loss, sometimes called summer slide, is a very real phenomenon and can affect all children. Studies show that students who do not engage in educational activities during the summer typically score lower on tests at the end of summer than they did at the beginning. It is estimated that two or three months of learning can be lost over summer vacation.

It is very important that students participate in summer educational activities. One study indicated that reading as few as 4-6 books over the summer helps readers maintain their skills and reading 10-20 helps readers improve their skills. The Monona Public Library offers a variety of fun programming, but there are also resources available to you online from BadgerLink (http://badgerlink.dpi.wi.gov/). Available to all Wisconsin residents, BadgerLink is Wisconsin’s Online Library and provides access to learning games, skill building activities, book recommendations, and more.
