You decide! You achieve! 

Research shows that when students read 33 times in a year, they experience improved academic outcomes. 33 and Me! helps educators support students in building reading habits.

How does 33 and Me work?


33 and Me! helps schools, educators, and students actively improve reading habits. Teachers complete a quick questionnaire to receive their easy, sequential plan with strategies to get started. Plus, educators will see a dashboard with reading activity metrics to personalize reading goals for each student and reward them along the way.

Based on the educator's goals and classroom instruction model, a personalized plan will be provided with resources, lesson plans, videos and strategies to support educators as they build students' reading habits. Teachers and students have the flexibility to decide how they want to incorporate a 33 goal into their reading plans between the program period dates of 9/15/17 and 4/30/18. Get creative to accomplish these, but remember the 3 main goals Learning Ally will monitor are:

1. Read 33 days. (We recommend reading for at least 20 minutes, but 5 minutes will count for this goal.)

2. Read 33 books.

3. Read 33 minutes on 9 weekends.

When a 33 reading goal is completed in the program period, the educator, school or student will be entered in a raffle to win a reward. One raffle drawing will take place at the end of each semester.
