Why focus on 3rd grade reading?

If a student cannot read proficiently by third grade their likeliness future academic success drops. Reading is the essential tool needed to continually grasp further concepts. Right now, less than half of students in Kansas City, MO are reading on grade level by the end of third grade. Turn the Page KC is addressing this with books, volunteers, and convening the community around this urgent issue.

Collaborative Action Networks

Turn the Page KC addresses 3rd grade reading through a network of experts, service providers, and practitioners focused on areas that support 3rd grade reading proficency. These areas include school readiness, school attendance, and summer learning.

School Readiness

The first four years of life are critical for laying the groundwork for reading. Beginning in the home, parents, and caregivers should be armed with both the knowledge and resources to infuse language starting at birth. Since children have the best chance to read by the end of 3rd grade if they come to school ready to learn, it is important that they have access to quality, literacy-rich early education programs.

School Attendance

In grades K-3, the school day is the most important opportunity to help children learn to read. Student attendance must be monitored and obstacles mitigated to limit chronic absenteeism. Click here to learn more.

Summer Learning

For many children, summer means a halt, or decline, in reading skills. Children in K-3 should be enrolled in a literacy rich summer learning program to continue their reading development even when school is not in session. Click here to learn more.
