    Summer 2018 K-3 Literacy: #CdAReads.  

    This community-wide celebration of reading provides opportunities to all K-3 students, facilitates the school-community connection, and supports the elements of good reading instruction throughout the summer months. As simple as it sounds, reading books can reverse the summer slide in literacy skills. Richard Allington, a professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and his colleagues found that giving kids 12 books to read over the summer was as effective as summer school in raising the students’ reading scores.
