Seesaw, the interactive learning platform for pre-K–5, recently launched its first-ever We Love to Read Challenge to ignite excitement around reading across the country. Through May 2023, Seesaw is motivating classrooms to track their weekly reading progress to earn exciting rewards along the way. Research says that reading 20 minutes a day impacts students’ long-term academic success, but celebrations and rewards can help too. Weekly participation in the We Love to Read Challenge unlocks rewards, such as special celebrations from Learning Turtle, student certificates, virtual student events with book authors, and the chance to win free books. Each week, participating teachers will receive a We Love to Read Challenge email containing a weekly reading bite to complete with their students. Those who complete the bite-sized reading idea are automatically entered into the giveaway for that week.
All Seesaw teachers receive the weekly challenge emails automatically; however, they can sign up on the challenge’s landing page as well. Here’s how to get your classroom challenge-ready:
- Get your classroom printables set up (student bookmark, classroom banner, and classroom poster).
- Open your weekly We Love to Read Challenge email that delivers a bite-sized reading idea.
- Each week, try the new reading idea with your classroom to keep reading motivation high!
