Summer Reading Resources from the Utah State Board of Education 

Students can lose up to two months of reading skills over the summer. This type of learning-loss is called the “Summer Slide.” Families can help by encouraging good reading practices.

  1. Pick up a library card. Access books at your local branch and digital copies online at no cost.
  2. Join a summer reading program. Local and national contests award participants with prizes, games, and even scholarship dollars.
  3. Use free Digital Learning Tools. Online games, articles, stories, and books.

Reading to your child can serve just as big an impact as independent reading. Children can read aloud to a grandparent, pet, friend, in person, or via video chat. Remember that magazines, graphic novels, comic books, and even blogs are still reading.
