Stop the Summer Slide!

by | June 6, 2019

How do you prevent the “summer slide”? Reading, reading, and more reading!

When kids are engaged in reading during the summer, they are much better prepared for the school year ahead. Luckily, there are nearly endless opportunities to help keep your children motivated over their break! We’ve provided just a few ideas below.

1) Here at Langsford, we offer 2 different workshops that provide great reading practice:

Kindergarten Enrichment Workshop
Get your kindergartener ready for 1st grade success!

Reading Fluency Workshop
Help your child grow their confidence in reading through this fun, interactive workshop!

2) Most communities offer many summer reading programs that provide rewarding reading experiences for kids. Below are 2 of our favorites here at Langsford:

Louisville Free Public Library
You can register online to read 10 books between June 1st and August 10th. Then, you can stop by your local library where your child will receive a prize package! What’s included in the package? A Monster Reader pencil pouch, passes to different museums, tickets to sporting events, and so much more. On top of this, you’ll also be entered to win one of several grand prizes.

Half Price Books Feed Your Brain Summer Reading Program
Using the reading log provided by Half Price Books on their website, your child can log the time they spend reading throughout June and July. Once they reach 300 minutes (or more, if they’d like!), you can deliver the log to your local Half Price Books. Deliver the log before August 29th to receive a gift card!

We help kids become more confident readers!
