This chapter deals with the after effects of the children during their summer vacation. As the school year winds down, educators and students eagerly anticipate the more relaxed schedule that summer vacation affords. However, a lengthy school break can result in a decline of one to three months in language arts and mathematics achievement scores. The summer slide mostly affects elementary students of low socioeconomic status and continues to affect those students beyond high school as they enter post-secondary education or the job market. Students can and should be engaged in learning activities each day during school breaks to maintain and extend the knowledge and skills they acquire in the classroom. This Literacy Booster Meeting will share with parents/caregivers insights and resources that encourage them to provide children with enjoyable and motivating learning opportunities to minimize the summer slide over school vacations.
