Free Literacy Guides for Families

We all know reading is very important. It is one of the most important life skills for school & work. It also brings joy into our lives through stories and learning. From kindergarten through third grade, it’s really important for kids to learn how t

o read well. After third grade, your child will need to be able to read to learn about all different subjects in school. That’s why it is very important to get really good at reading during those early years of school. But some kids aren’t getting the instruction they need to learn how to read. We are leaving a lot of kids behind.

But there is good news. When kids get clear & specific teaching in reading every year, called the science of reading or structured literacy, 95% of them can learn to read at their grade level. This guide will help you know if your child is getting that clear & detailed teaching & what to do if they are not.
