MTRReads 2014 Recap

MTRReads_student_w_certificate

Students who participated in after-school reading coaching with our team of over 80 wonderful volunteers learned on average 383 sight words since August! For many of our students who started the year far below grade level in reading, this is a HUGE difference in their ability to recognize sight words in context and to use more of their brain power for comprehending their reading, rather than just decoding words.

And do not underestimate the confidence-building benefits of this reading growth and personalized attention either. It was amazing when administering end-of-year assessments to see the confidence and self-assuredness of some of the same students who were hesitant to even attempt to read sight words at the beginning of the year.

And the year-end celebration was priceless.
