Is your student ready for 2nd grade? How can you tell?
Simple: Can your student read fluently?
Reading fluency is the first step to comprehension. Together fluency and comprehension are the #1 indicators of future academic success. Reading builds knowledge, exposes students to proper grammar and exemplary writing techniques, helps develop writing skills, and develops essential critical thinking skills.
In other words, READING IS THE HOLY GRAIL!
