Feel good activities are very nice. They build culture and community but are only a part of a full education. It has to be coupled with a very rigorous academic program that builds literacy skills that then gives them access to the reading materials that they need. We get this with Momenta along with each child gaining the skills of autonomy, self-management, working well with others and accountability.

Our Programs

Momenta’s introductory low-cost packages are offered to schools who have never worked with Momenta before. Teachers and coaches will learn strategies to implement in the classroom immediately, and will receive in-school support to make sure the new strategies take hold in classrooms across grade levels.

You choose the package that best meets the needs of your faculty and students. All bundles include a 1 day workshop and follow up coaching visits that include model lessons, debriefing sessions with faculty, walkthroughs to support implementation, and in the case of data analysis, support in understanding and presenting the data to facilitate engaging and effective data meetings for grade level teams.

Our impact

Momenta gets results

Educators embrace Momenta as a pathway to creating a performance-driven culture that gives every child what he or she needs to become a confident, articulate, engaged and happy student.

Momenta’s greatest strength is its performance with low-income and Limited English Proficient (LEP) students. Across the board, from literacy to math, students are developing critical thinking skills.

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.
