Beat the Summer Learning Loss with this Summer Reading List

KidinSand2The temps are rising, the midwest misquitos are emerging, and my freezer is stocked full of popsicles, which can only mean one thing: summer is here.  But if your kids are anything like mine, the "I'm Bored" whines have also started. 

 

With an English teacher for a mom, my kids know that I fight summer boredom with trips to the library and daily summer reading time.  This not only brings a few minutes of peace to our otherwise chaotic house, but also helps my kids fight that pesky summer learning loss.

 

A recent article summarized several findings regarding the phenomenom of summer learning loss.  The authors concluded that on average, students’ achievement scores declined over summer vacation by one month’s worth of school-year. 

 

If you're looking for books that are both educational and high-interest for your kids or students, look no further than The Museum of the American Revolution's #ReadTheRevolution 2019 Kids Summer Reading list - highlighting the best children's literature for learning about American history. 

 

The list is broken down by grade level, from pre-school to high school:

 

Preschool to 2nd Grade

 


3rd to 6th Grade


7th Grade and Up
