The mission of KANSAS READING ROADMAP is to create a pathway to literacy for every child.
From kindergarten through third grade, children are learning to read. By fourth grade, children are reading to learn. KRR uses a skills-based system to help students learn the "Big 5" essential reading skills: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension. KRR supports students during their school day and provides additional out-of-school learning opportunities.
