In Kindergarten, 100% of the children are reading. Parents are excited and involved in their children's progress in developing learning skills. I get super excited when I catch Caden trying to put the letters together to make a word. We read one book when we get home from work and school and right before I start making dinner. Then we read another one before bed. This is normal, healthy parent-child activity. Most children are active readers even through the next couple of school grades.
But research shows that the 100% of child readers drop dramatically down to 54% once they enter the fourth grade.
