Did you know that reading skill losses during the summer months are cumulative, creating a wider gap each year between more proficient and less proficient students? It may be summer, but that doesn’t mean that kids should stop reading! Join Story Monster’s campaign to get kids #caughtreading — It’s an easy and a fun way to promote literacy!
Use the hashtag #caughtreading and post a photo of your child(ren) reading. Make sure you tag Story Monsters (@storymonsters) and we will share on our social media pages!
