So what is Rewards for Reading?
The basic concept is simple: The children read a book, they take a test to demonstrate that they comprehended what they read, if they pass they get a ticket that goes into a drawing for prizes. The more books they read, the more chances they have to win. And best of all, it works. For the 2021-2022 school year, the schools we serve saw a 22% increase in million word readers and a 127% increase in engaged reading minutes. That was with only promising 4 bikes per school!
