Summer Reading Increases Student Achievement


HIVE builds in time for students to read at school each day while school is in session, but research shows that this may not be enough, especially over the summer. Students who read at home over the summer in addition to reading at school tend to have higher test scores. Here are some ways to incorporate reading at home this summer!

  • Read the cereal box each morning
  • Read road signs as you walk or drive
  • Have your child read the grocery list as you shop
  • Find a reading website or app that your child enjoys like  
  • Look up information about a favorite subject on the computer
  • Take regular trips to the library and join the summer reading program
  • Start a book club with friends
  • Model reading by reading in front of and to your children each day
  • Echo read with your child–You read a page and then your child reads the same page
  • Choral read–You and your child read the same page at the same time.
