Summer break is a perfect time for children to establish or renew a reading habit, which is why the Huntington Learning Center is launching its annual summer reading program, Reading Adventure.
Reading Adventure introduces children to high-interest reading material and gets them excited about reading. Running from May to August, the program is for students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Students choose books from Huntington’s pre-selected book lists, which offer a variety of high-interest choices by grade level and reading ability. Students then record what they read in their “reading passport,” sharing their opinions and observations about each book.
Reading is an easy way for students to mitigate learning loss over summer break, Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center. “The goal of Reading Adventure is to show children how fun and exciting reading can be, but the major benefit we see with children who participate in the program is that they retain their reading and literacy skills during the months they aren’t in school, she says. “As with any skill that takes practice, students who read regularly become better at it, which makes it something they’re more likely to continue to do. Reading Adventure makes reading enjoyable and benefits children at the same time.”
Huntington shares that getting children to read over summer is easier than parents think. She offers a few tips on how to get their children reading during the break:
