Jumpstarting Success in Kindergarten
MOMENTA MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Improving basic reading fluency, particularly in kindergarten, is a powerful way to improve MCAS performance. Kindergartners in Momenta schools improve their reading fluency far more than their counterparts in a national sample. In a nationally representative sample, only 27% of children enter kindergarten with basic alphabetic skills. By the end of kindergarten, only 30% have mastered grade-level reading skills. By 3rd grade, only 34% of children are reading at grade level.
Children enter kindergarten in Momenta schools scoring about the same as their counterparts in the national sample. However, by the end of kindergarten over 50% of Momenta students have mastered grade-level reading skills, and they continue to progress on grade level through 3rd grade.
