Third grade marks an important turning point for young students—the transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” If students are unable to make this transition, learning in every subject becomes increasingly challenging. In fact, students who don’t read at grade level by the fourth grade are four times more likely than their peers to drop out of high school. Yet two-thirds of American fourth-graders—roughly six million children—cannot read at grade level.
