Children go through certain phases of reading development from preschool through third grade from exploration of books to independent reading. Find out what children at each phase should be able to do, and what teachers and families can do to support their development along the way.

First Year Teacher was a pilot project of Reading Rockets, which is service of WETA, Washington D.C.'s flagship public television station. Funding for First Year Teacher was provided by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs; The Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation; and The Overbrook Foundation.
