So… tonight, as I finished reading with my student, he suddenly says to me “I think Read a Book, Earn a Book is really helping me.”
I respond, “How so?”
He says, “My teacher says I’ve gone up two reading levels”.
Quickly I match improvement levels to reading time, realizing that this means that he is improving at a rate of almost one level per month in the time we have been reading together.
Just think what we could do if each of us invest 30 minutes per week reading with a student. Just 30 minutes! If you know of someone passionate about literacy… please encourage them to volunteer through a Read a Book, Earn a Book!
