The following pages list accomplishments you can expect of your child by the end of kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3. This list is based on research in the fields of reading, early childhood education, and child development. Please remember that not all children develop and learn at the same pace or in the same way.
Your child may be more advanced or need more help than others in his/her age group. You are, of course, the best judge of your child’s abilities and needs. You should take the accomplishments as guidelines and not as hard-and-fast-rules. If you have concerns about your child’s reading development, talk to his/her teacher.
