Set Students Up for Reading Success This Summer and Beyond

Teachers: Follow Bookshare's checklist before school ends so students are ready for a summer reading bonanza.

Great readers are made, not born. For students with disabilities, the path to reading greatness may require tools and support. We know the final weeks of the school year are hectic, so here’s a handy checklist to help you get your students ready for delightful summer reading and the upcoming school year.

According to Reading Rockets, studies show that most students experience a loss of reading skills over the summer months, but children who continue to read will gain skills. Help students avoid the dreaded “summer slide” by completing these steps before the final school bell rings.

If your students are already set up to access Bookshare independently, jump ahead to learn about our special Summer Reading Lists.
