Parents, you may want to start helping your children with their reading lessons. According to a study featured on Science Daily, kids who receive one-on-one coaching from first to third grade may develop reading skills that are beyond grade-level expectations..

Using an algorithmic software called Assessment-to-Instruction (A2i), a team of experts led by psychological scientist Carol McDonald Connor of Arizona State University worked with teachers in order to find out which teaching technique on reading met the needs of students.

Based on available data, researchers found that students who received individualized student instruction (ISI) had better reading skills by the end of the third grade as compared with students who didn’t. In fact, those who had one-on-one coaching with teachers showed above-average scores in achievement tests.

“Another way to think about this is that 94 percent of the students in ISI classrooms from first to third grade were reading proficiently, compared to only 78 percent of the children who didn’t participate all three years,” says Connor.

Unfortunately, not many teachers and students can afford the luxury of ISI. However, parents can still support their children’s reading education by conducting extra lessons at home. This way, the kids will be able to sharpen their reading skills and spend time with their family at the same time.
