We get measurable results. We change lives.
OUR GOAL is to give Kindergarten and First Grade students foundational reading skills they need to start on a path for lifetime learning. What makes us different is how we do this.
Our evidence-based reading improvement curriculum uses music and drama to make learning fun for pre-k through first grade students, with content tailored to meet the unique needs of every child. Teachers receive extensive training, support, and tools to ensure their ability to implement the program successfully.
We get measurable results. This is the reason we do what we do. Empirical data is essential to measuring the success and efficacy of our literacy model. We are one of the few nonprofit literacy organizations that have independent, peer-reviewed studies that measure our results. That’s why we mean it when we say, “Don’t just take our word for it.”
Our mission changes the lives of children. Do you want to help position students for success in life? Here is how you can make a difference.
After 35 successful years in Chicago, Reading In Motion is now expanding into new sites in Las Vegas, Nevada, allowing us to make a difference in thousands more lives.
The 2017/2018 school marked our first year of serving students in Las Vegas as we partnered with four Pinecrest Academy Schools. Our results in our initial year went beyond expectations by 34%, which equated to getting 98% of students reading at grade level.
In the 2018/2019 school year, we are expanding our footprint within Pinecrest Academy and Clark County School District schools.
If you are interested in helping to bring Reading In Motion to more schools, please contact our Director of Education, Kristen Walter, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
