The "Summer Slide" refers to the reality that students often come back to school in the fall with lower levels of academic proficiency than when they left school the previous spring. In fact, a recent study found that students in grades 1-8 lose 17% - 34% of the prior year's learning over summer break!  While all students may lose some, this is seen more prominently in early learners and low income families.


So what can we do about it?

Research suggests that blending academic learning with hands-on activity during Summer programs can reduce the effects of the summer slide. That's where the StoryBook Treasures Summer Enrichment Kit comes in to accomplish exactly this! Our affordable mini-kit includes both a book AND hands on activity to help your students stay on track this summer.

For large volume discounts, or to discuss your school or district's summer needs, we'd love to chat with you.
