How Summer Reading Works

Studies show that children who don’t read during the summer will regress and be less prepared when school starts. This is commonly referred to as the “Summer Slide.” Most students show losses in math, and students from low-income households tend to show significant losses in reading and spelling. To combat Summer Slide and ultimately succeed in school and life, the National Summer Learning Association states that children need opportunities to learn and practice academic and social skills throughout the summer months. The NSLA suggests enrolling students in high quality summer programs to engage them in learning new skills, encourage them to develop previously unseen talents, help them stay fit and active, and foster creativity and innovation.

The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry offers a variety of meaningful learning experiences during the summer, including educational exhibits and a weekly Brown Bag STEM Challenge. For more information, visit explorecml.org.
