Research shows that reading for as little as 20 minutes a day is powerful for students. Reading activates the imagination and transports readers to distant places–both real and fantastical. This makes reading joyful and magical.
Additionally, reading builds vocabulary and background knowledge, which empowers readers to learn even more about the world!
Since reading is such an essential activity, we have created the Winter Break Mallow-Mallow challenge to help students find fun ways to read over break. Read more about the challenge here.
