Learn From Experts
Join our virtual book study as we learn with Dr. Maryanne Wolf and others on how to build deep reading brains and eradicate illiteracy in our time.
Construction of the Reading Brain
Reading is an acquired skill, not an automatic process.
Reading is critical to success in our society, but our brains do not come pre-wired for reading. A child enters the world with 100 billion neurons ready to learn. Our job is to help those neurons form brain circuits that support learning and reading.Learn More
3rd trimester - 5 yrs old
Babies are born ready to communicate. They distinguish sounds and recognize their mother’s voice. They look for faces. They seek connections. Talking with babies, even as early as the last trimester of pregnancy, is critical to building language and literacy.
Kindergarten - 3rd grade
During the early school years, it is vital to routinely assess children’s preparedness for reading. Each day we must ask: “What does this child need to learn today?”, “What did they learn from this lesson?”, “What can I do differently?”
3rd grade and beyond
Third grade marks a critical point in a child’s life – when they transition from learning to read to reading to learn. Once a child can read proficiently, they are free to build knowledge and take the steps to be who they want to be.
