Getting children to read to learn

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Maranda is kicking off March as Reading Month with a focus on the importance of reading in a child’s life. Research indicates if a child isn’t reading well in the third grade, he or she will struggle in grades to come. Maranda brought in Mary Cotterall a reading specialist at Holmes Elementary in Spring Lake and Sandra Smits, principal at Homes Elementary School. Educators from  Ottawa Area Intermediate School District help us to understand more about this issue of reading.
