Metrics Update for this week:
Our readers increased to 209,389
We’ve had over 141 million pages read--an increase of 65% over last year for school readers!
We had 46,058 reading at frequency*
Happy Summer, and Happy Reading, everyone!
*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.
It’s summer time, and that means...Learning Ally’s Summer Reading Together!
Each year, students all over the country compete for monthly and grand prizes while completing summer reading assignments and fighting summer slide. It’s a great program and motivates students to continue building their reading and comprehension skills. The students can read anything available on Learning Ally, including material assigned as summer reading and books that are just for fun. To help them get started, the Family part of our website includes a link to Learning Ally Featured Books, grouped by themes such as Summer Reading Together: Space Exploration and Learning Ally Featured Books from Best-Selling Series, and includes books ranging from items based on movies to classic literature. To explore our current list, click here:
In addition, we have a Vocabulary Challenge for them on social media, where they can upload video recommendations of summer reading books, or post three to six vocabulary words that they learned during their summer reading experience. Participants will be entered into a raffle, and one lucky winner will be the proud owner of a new Chromebook at the end of the summer!
Our readers increased to 208,500
We’ve had over 137 million pages read--an increase of 66% over last year for school readers!
We had 45,743 reading at frequency*
Keep up the great work, everyone! We're looking forward to a terrific summer!
