The I Love to Read Challenge is ON!

Week two of the I Love to Read Challenge is completed!  The new brackets are here and there has been a LOT of reading done!  Congrats to all the classes for reading a total of 326,165 minutes!!  Whether your child is participating in the Challenge or not, WISH-TV encourages you to grab a favorite book or find a new favorite at your local library. Let’s get reading!

Now in its 31st year, the I Love to Read Challenge is designed to encourage a love of reading in third-graders at a time when students are developmentally adapting from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” And studies are showing that young children have been hit the hardest by academic disruptions during the pandemic so reading is more important now than ever.

The bracket-style elimination challenge encourages safe competition among classrooms with a focus on both personal effort and collaborative achievement.
