WHY IS LEARNING TO READ BY GRADE 3 SO IMPORTANT?
We know children must ‘learn‐to‐read’ by the end of Grade 3 so that they can ‘read to learn’ in Grade 4 and beyond. Without this fundamental skill, children are unable to take full advantage of learning opportunities in all subject areas and develop confidence in their ability to learn. This slowly leads to student frustration and disengagement, and ultimately to dropping out of school. Acquiring strong literacy skills by the end of Grade 3 is a powerful, protective factor against student disengagement.
