Returning to school can be a big and stressful transition for children. Even your smallest kids may be feeling stressed or anxious. A new school year brings a new teacher, new routines, new classmates and all kinds of new schoolwork. That much change could make anyone feel overwhelmed, but children often don’t know how to cope with these big emotions.

Guiding the “Undiscovered Reader” – “Rise and Shine” 3rd-5th Grade Summer Reading14 Aug 2022 in
According to the educators here at Arkansas PBS, starting in the third grade, children are in a reading transition period. At this age, we transition from the stage of learning to read to reading to learn. This reading level is just as important as the reading development that is taught in kindergarten through second grade. In this stage, students are introduced to and comprehended more information than ever before. This is also where “reluctant” – better known as “undiscovered readers” – find their love for reading.
