The goal of our program is to improve reading comprehension by fostering children’s engagement with books over the summer.
We believe that children are “engaged” with books when they are motivated to read them on their own and in ways that increase their reading comprehension. The three key elements (“ABCs”) of READS for Summer Learning are:
Access to books at home, including a wide variety of texts.
Books that are well-matched to each child’s reading level and interests.
Comprehension activities, including teacher scaffolding of summer book reading through end-of-year lessons, summer follow-up phone calls, and family support of summer reading.
