Reading Rockets & Early Literacy

 

Reading Rockets    Reading Rockets offers parents, caregivers, teachers and librarians a wealth of information on creating young readers and inspiring a love of reading in our kids. This national multimedia reading initiative examines how young kids learn to read, why so many struggle, and how caring adults can help. Reading Rockets brings the best research-based strategies to teachers, parents, librarians, childcare providers, and anyone else involved in helping a young child become a strong reader. Our goal is to bring the reading research to life — to spread the word about the teaching of reading and to present what works in a way parents and educators are able to understand and use.Teaching reading is a complicated task….so much so, that reading expert Louisa Moats titled her influential article about the skills and knowledge educators need to really teach reading well “Teaching Reading IS Rocket Science.” That’s how Reading Rockets got its name!
