Often children will develop basic reading skills, but struggle to move on to more advanced material. We will be exploring the main roadblocks that kids face when learning to read and learn how they engage with the material from their own perspective. We will also learn one easy game that you can play to make a dramatic difference in older students ability to become a strong reader. It works like magic!
