Tuesday & Hope you had a great 3 day holiday. We are on Summer Break but learning doesn’t stop at our house & I am sure you are the same .
Summer Reading Loss :

(2) declines were sharper for math than for reading, and
(3) the extent of loss was larger at higher grade levels. Importantly, they also concluded that income-based reading gaps grew over the summer, given that middle class students tended to show improvement in reading skills while lower-income students tended to experience loss.
