Reading is fundamental in all curriculum. A recent study shows that those students who aren't reading at grade level by the 3rd grade are less likely than their peers who are to graduate from high school. Reading daily to self, to others, or simply being read aloud to have HUGE benefits. It's not the number of toys in a house that catapults a student to success, it's the number of books. The more one reads the better one reads. Oklahoma recently passed SB 346 that requires all 3rd graders to be reading at grade level before they are promoted to 4th grade. This is a critical benchmark for students. School readiness is essential. This website gives a very good oversight of what it means to be Ready for Kindergarten. Adding to the urgency of raising better readers, is the fact that the 21st century will and is making a rapid transistion from printed text to digital text. This shift will require a higher level of reading skill, for example, the ability to discriminate text, origin of information, and synthesize the information read. Read to live and live to read. Quality of life depends on it. I hope this video inspires you to read.
