The foundation for reading is laid at a very early stage in life. Yet, children’s reading skills develop at their own pace. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a guideline to know if your child is on track with their reading skills?
During age 5, they may be able to retell a story using pictures or words while at ages 6-7 they begin to learn spelling rules and from ages 8-10 they can understand similes and metaphors. This is an invitation for you to grab this guideline of reading skills through the ages. Understood.org has put together a well organized list for parents like you.
