THIS SUMMER

Summer is the key opportunity to develop your child’s reading skills for the upcoming school year.

Our fun summer program will make a big difference in your child’s reading development.

Reading over the summer is critical for academic success. Students who don’t read or practice skills they’ve already learned can lose up to three months of progress over the summer.

Entering 3rd Graders Who Sharpen Reading Skills During The Summer Have A Real Advantage.

Students who develop reading skills during the summer gain up to three months of progress and get a jump start on 3rd grade. On the first day of school, they feel confident and motivated to succeed.

WHAT YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN

LONG-WORD DECODING

Students learn to read multi-syllable words easily and accurately through in-class activities and fun online lessons tailored to their skill level. Kids love this part of the program because it helps them read the many long words they’ll encounter every day in 3rd grade.

FLUENCY

In this program, your child will learn to read more smoothly, easily, and accurately. In class, teachers lead fluency training exercises. Students also practice fluent reading at home in engaging interactive lessons. Reading fluently will allow your child to devote full attention to the story, leading to stronger comprehension and greater enjoyment.

COMPREHENSION

Your child will learn to follow story structure, plot, and character development through lively guided discussions in class, and interactive online lessons and quizzes at home. Strong comprehension makes reading fun and rewarding.

INDEPENDENT READING

The most important thing your child can do to practice these skills and get ready for next year is read a lot. During this program, your child will read seven wonderful chapter books, including four take-home books that are yours to keep. Reading these books provides great skills practice, promotes a lifelong love of reading, and ensures a big head start on 3rd grade.

– Kurt, Parent

“His motivation has skyrocketed. He’s asking for a book a week.”

– Louie, Parent

“I really like the online lessons. I think they worked well with the books we were reading, and it brought the books to life.””
