We Build Strong Readers

Our goal is to get every student reading at grade level or above during their early years, especially students who need greater support due to their circumstances. Learn more about how Reading In Motion is helping students during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We Make a Difference

Non-Reading In Motion Schools (57%)

Our Benchmarks program is proven to make a difference for our students. Through our arts-enriched curriculums in both English and Spanish, we are able to get an average of 80% of students reading at or above grade level, a dramatic increase over the typical public school curriculum alone.

How We Do It

We start our work with students early in their academic careers, engage them through art-infused curriculum, use data to guide our work, and support our partner teachers throughout the process.

Support Young Readers

The ability to read is a powerful tool. Join in our fight for every student’s right to a quality education.

We believe EVERY student deserves a chance to be successful. One in four American children will grow up without learning how to read. We have the ability to stop this from happening. Reading In Motion provides children with the resources, support, and opportunity to learn the foundational skills that lead to fluent reading. The gift of literacy is a gift that will keep on giving for the entire lifetime of a child. Your gift can help more children learn how to read!

Children who read for 30 minutes or more per day are twice as likely to be college and career ready. Let's be their example and share with them the importance of reading!
