Your early reader’s third advantage: Success in School

sunMany people ask me, “Why is it important for my child to be reading at an early age?” One reply is:

  • Your early reader can become more confident and successful. School is more academic. Gone are half days or naptime in kindergarten. Our children are expected to be ready to read when starting kindergarten.
  • Children without reading skills are left behind quickly. Children who come to kindergarten with a strong reading foundation or who are already reading independently can keep pace. They have a wider range of vocabulary and ideas. As a result, they tend to be confident and secure about their abilities in school. This leads to greater enjoyment and overall motivation within the classroom environment.

When I track the kids I have taught and my daughter’s progress, I see success continue throughout their school experiences. Children who are successful in school go on to take that success through their lives and help to make the world a better place.

How has early reading helped your child or a child you know?
