Summertime for kids means letting loose and enjoying freedom from the classroom. Unfortunately, the extended break from school also means that many students will experience summer learning loss. Also known as “summer slide,” this phenomenon refers to academic setbacks that occur due to a lack of practice during the summer months.
According to a study published by American Education Research Journal, about half of students lose approximately 40% of their total school year gains over summer break.
On average, up to two months of reading and math skills are lost during the summer. This regression is even more evident in low-income households, and the students who experience the greatest loss are often those who made the greatest gains during the previous school year. Research also shows that kids who fall behind over the summer are less likely to graduate from high school or go on to college.
The good news is, summer learning loss can be prevented! It only takes 2-3 hours per week to keep kids on track and avoid the summer slide.
