Why 33?

Based on an extensive review of reading data with Learning Ally human-read audiobooks nationwide, 33 days of reading for 20 minutes per day consistently skyrockets students into higher levels of reading achievement. Learning Ally defines this as Reading With Frequency, a crucial tipping point based on 33 days of reading, which leads to improved social-emotional and academic outcomes. 33 and Me! is a student goal setting and reading motivation program that helps educators support students in achieving Reading With Frequency!

Personal, Recommended and Advanced Reading Goals

When students are just starting out, set small, achievable goals to encourage more reading. Some examples may include just letting them pick a book they are interested in or one of the following:

Elementary Middle School High School
Read a picture book for background knowledge on an upcoming history lesson Read the book before the movie comes out to increase reading stamina Read a chapter with increased speed to absorb content and manage workload

The following goals can be tracked when reading with Learning Ally’s app. Educators can progress monitor on their educator portal dashboard. Log in to review and export a report of students’ days spent reading, minutes, books (coming soon) and pages. When students achieve one of the below goals, they will be automatically entered into the Learning Ally quarterly or annual prize drawing.

Try to achieve Reading With Frequency during each of these quarters to be entered into a raffle for a prize drawing on 10/31, 1/31, 4/30 and 7/31. Your reading activity doesn't reset every quarter, no matter which quarter you achieve 33 or 660, you get put into that drawing. After your first time to meet your goal, you must achieve it again to be put in the next quarter drawing.
