Summer is a fun and exciting time for everyone to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with families and friends and simply relax. It is also a perfect opportunity to encourage students to read!
Over the summer, many students experience the summer slide, which can rob them of gains they made the previous school year. Children who do not read over the summer can lose more than two months of reading achievement. Unfortunately, summer reading loss is cumulative.
Together, we can help your student avoid the summer slide! Did you know that your student has access to myON, a personalized collection of more than 5,800 digital books to read over the summer on computers, laptops and other devices anytime, anywhere? myON contains books for every age, interest and reading level that will keep them engaged and learning all summer long!
To help encourage reading this summer, myON has created a national reading contest to motivate kids to read and will reward top readers with cool prizes. The theme of this year’s contest is Reading is a BLAST this summer with myON. Please encourage your student to read as much as possible - they will be entered for a chance to win by reading 10 or more books! Be sure to follow myON on Facebook (myONFanClub) and @myONreader for important updates
and special events during the summer. Go to https://support.myon.com/resources-tutorials/overview to learn more about myON this summer.
We hope you enjoy the 2018 Reading is a BLAST with myON Summer Reading Program! Happy reading!
