This summer, help your child become a confident, enthusiastic reader. Summer Reading Skills Programs are offered by California State University, Fresno, Division of Continuing and Global Education, designed and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development.

Strengthen Skills, Build Confidence, Enjoy Reading 

These single-grade programs teach key reading skills, from phonics and sight words for younger children to comprehension, reading speed, textbook strategies for older kids, and everything in between.  

Guided by a knowledgeable and supportive teacher, students in these programs experience success with reading repeatedly, developing their skills, and building confidence in outstanding books at the right level of challenge for each age.  

Your child will avoid the many challenges of summer learning loss and become an avid reader who enjoys reading for school and pleasure. 

How the Programs Work 

Your child will attend weekly classes that build skills and provide great experiences with terrific books filled with interesting characters, exciting storylines, and engaging themes. Your child will practice reading between classes and complete fun, interactive lessons that develop core skills and build confidence.  

An Institute of Reading Development teacher will provide all the support and instruction your child needs to grow as a reader and student. Your child will get a jumpstart on the next school year and be ready to make it a big success!
