MPS Strong is reading all summer long

Kids can lose two months of reading skills over the summer- a phenomenon called "summer slide"- when they don't have opportunities to continue their learning. In collaboration with our partners, MPS Strong Reads focuses on preventing summer slide by making summer reading fun and easy. 

Check out our upcoming events, partner programs resources, and opportunities to get involved.

Top tips for making summer reading fun:

1. Let kids choose 

Does your child love sharks? Sports? Fashion? Let them read about it! More than 90% of kids say they are more likely to finish a book that they picked out.

2. Read together

Act out stories, use funny voices and laugh at silly pictures. Reading together is great family bonding time and helps kids develop a lifelong love of reading.

3. Ask your child questions

Talk with your child about the book they're reading. Ask them questions like? 

  •      What is the story about?
  •      What do you think will happen next? 
  •      What was your favorite part?

4.  Find fun programs
