Help stop the 'SUMMER SLIDE"
Now is the time to set your students up for summer reading success!
Teachers can spend up to six weeks when school returns reteaching lost skills to students who have spent little or no time reading in the holidays.
Children who read as few as six books during the holidays will maintain their reading level skills taught during the year.
A proven way to keep kids reading over Summer is participation in a summer reading programme.
TARGET GOAL: 1 MILLION READING MINUTES
Let's set a new record for Australia and New Zealand!
If each country beats their Summer Reading Minutes total from last year's challenge, then we are well on the way to reading a combined total of 1 million Reading Minutes and setting a new Summer Reading record for Australia and New Zealand.
* weekly prize draws and grand prizes for participating students
* prizes for the schools in each country with students actively logging Reading Minutes throughout the challenge
* grand prize school winners in each country that achieve the highest student participation rate(relative to total number of students in school)
