Kids Reading to Kids is a national program for character development and reading improvement. Based upon the unique Kids Reading to Kids methodology that centers on the concept that “The Power is in the Kids,” Kids Reading to Kids focuses on preparing kids for the learning experience by developing self-confidence and the inner drive to succeed.  Often improvement is dramatic and rapid.

Kids Reading to Kids provides a comprehensive training program for educators, parents and kids.

  The Kids Reading to Kids Phenomenon  

Kids Reading to Kids is a national educational program for character development and reading improvement for underachievers in grades 1-4. Kids Reading to Kids includes an innovative teaching methodology and associated educator training systems.  Kids Reading to Kids in its simplest form is beginning and early readers reading to younger non-reading kids in a structured Kids Reading to Kids environment using Kids Reading to Kids developed methodologies. Typical settings are 3rd or 4th graders reading to first graders or kindergarteners, or school-aged beginning readers reading to younger siblings at home. The benefit of Kids Reading To Kids is that reading improvement often is dramatic and rapid, and it is accompanied by positive character development and reader confidence.

Kids Reading To Kids is based upon several core concepts:

bullet

The power is in the Kids and their emotional involvement

bullet

Kids are the messengers and motivators for other Kids

bullet

Reading Kids are participants, apprentices, teachers and role models

bullet

Non-readers want to emulate the beginning readers

bullet

Learning is "kid-centric" and "kid-led"

bullet

Reading to young non-readers prepares them for learning -- as young as age one.

Why does it work? Kids Reading to Kids creates a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment for the beginning reader where there is no teacher or peer pressure. The reader is “looked up to” by the younger child, regardless of the reader’s ability. This quickly builds the reader’s confidence and leads to greater reading enjoyment and accelerated proficiency. In a classroom setting, Kids Reading to Kids builds fluency quicker by providing much more reading practice than would be possible with a single reader reading aloud – and the younger non-reader quickly builds new vocabulary and enthusiasm for reading.  Both members of the Kids Reading to Kids reading team benefit -- the beginning readers and the non-readers. Kids Reading To Kids is especially powerful for kids who are disadvantaged or underachievers and come to the beginning reading environment with low expectations or low confidence. We focus on creating the surroundings for success.
