Summer Slide: What is it and what can you do to prevent it?

Wednesday May 29 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Alberta Children’s Hospital Kinsmen Learning Centre (4th floor) 2888 Shaganappi Trail NW, Calgary Summer Slide: What is it and what can you do to prevent it? Throughout the summer, many children lose as much as 2 months of reading skills. Known as summer slide, this learning loss can leave children, especially those furthest from opportunity, up to 3 years behind their peers by the end of Grade 5. In this session, learn how to keep children engaged over the summer to ensure they don't lose any ground in their learning and experience the joy of reading. ————————————————————————————
