Summer is a wonderful time. School children everywhere are enjoying a multitude of activities: Swimming, vacations, play time with siblings and family, hanging out and sleeping in a little bit longer in the mornings. Oh, and Summer Slide. Most children are participating in this as well, and this is one activity they need to stay away from.
Statistics show that during the summer, children lose on average 2 months of knowledge they have already learned during the previous school year. After several years of summer sliding, the student can be up to 2 years behind in their education and these numbers are higher for children with English as a second language.
Read Conmigo is a program that provides FREE bilingual books and activities to children all across the United States. Read Conmigo is committed to helping bilingual children avoid the summer slide.
