What is the summer slide? Summer slide refers to the loss of reading skills that results when students slip out of the practice of reading over the summer (see "Three Ways to Prevent Summer Slide"). It is suggested that students who read at least six books will not regress over summer vacation. So, how do we prevent the summer slide? We engage them in summer reading programs.

New 5th Grade Students-I am excited to get to know you all! I'm not sure when the class lists will be out?
I will be taking classes and planning in the month of June. I will be
learning and planning for the New Common Core in Math and Language Arts.
