“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” ~Winston Churchill


Learning Ally Transforms Lives

 

Eilyn Davis and Mike Freeman have big smiles on their faces as they talk about Learning Ally.  Graphics have been added, making them appear as if they are wearing cartoon-style pink hats with cat and bunny ears, and pink headphones.  Audio-related icons are in front of Mike as if they are his microphone.  Between them are puffy, white, cloud-like words:  GOOD DAY


 

Mike Freeman, Superintendent Principal at Grant Elementary School in Redding, California, and Resource Learning Lab Teacher Eilyn Davis are BIG fans of Learning Ally!  Click on the link to watch this video and find out why:

Metrics Update for this week:

  • Our readers increased to 196,219

 

  • We had 39,491 reading at frequency*

 

  • We had over 118 million pages read--an increase of 70% over last year for school readers!


 

Great work, everyone!  Let’s see what next week brings!


 

*at frequency = students are reading books multiple times during the school year, with a general target of thirty times (more for lower grades, less for upper grades).  Our data shows that most of these students read for at least 20 minutes each time.
