Learn more about The Great Reading Games

Watch the video below to understand why we are excited about Learning Ally's Great Reading Games event!

 

 

Learning Ally's Great Reading Games is a 7-week event proven to help educators engage students and increase reading stamina. Struggling readers return to class each day excited to see how many pages they read and if their school has moved up on one of the 12 school leaderboards.   Dyslexic and struggling readers have the motivation they need and the recognition they deserve for their reading achievements!   The 2020 Great Reading Games will run from 1/13/20- 2/29/20!

 

 

 

 

Here are some highlights from last year’s Reading Games:
•    2,086 schools participated in the 2019 Great Reading Games. 
•    37,500 participating students read close to 12 million pages throughout the 2019 Great Reading Games. 
•    12 schools earned the coveted title of “1st Place in their Bracket”.  120 total schools were awarded prizes.
•    Schools participated in social media challenges, which allowed them to celebrate their success and accomplishments. 
•    2020 will be the biggest Great Reading Games yet!

 

 

How can you help?

  • Work on getting your book project completed so it gets into the hands of a student participating in the Great Reading Games! Any book that you are working on could be a book that a student would like to add to their bookshelf and start reading!

Testimonials:
“I am a 6th grade Sped Teacher and the fact that my students can read books that their peers are reading does wonder for their confidence. Most of my students LOVE reading on LA.  The Reading Games were FANTASTIC!! They begged to go on, we came in 4th place for our division. They have never experienced such success with reading and it was amazing. Thank you so much for that. Thank you for the shirts and the earbuds and the certificates, they walked around proudly that day! I love Learning Ally."

 

“I LOVE LEARNING ALLY!!! I could be your spokesperson!!! It is difficult to find quality reading resources to help high school-aged students but this is perfect!!!    We subscribed for the 2018-19 school year. We promoted it during the first semester, but no one used it. At the start of the new year, I started going into classrooms, signing up students, and modeling how to use it for teachers and students together. About 30 kiddos began to use it, some more than others.   There are about 16 who use it regularly. These students have been changed by this gift of reading! They show a new sense of pride where before they were embarrassed about their reading abilities. Several of them have even stopped into my library office to share with me about how much THEY love it and how it is helping them! One of them even placed 6th in our division for the Learning Ally Great Reading Challenge that ended in February!  We are ending the year with these students reading over 18,000 pages and having spent over 300 hours reading! I am so proud of them and so happy to have found Learning Ally! In my 30 years of teaching, I have not found anything that has helped high school readers like Learning Ally. Thank you!”
