100 Days of Reading Challenge

By DG Gerry Kosanovic

Without daily reading practice, children can lose up to three months of literacy skills over the summer. In the aftermath of school closings and decreased access to summer learning programs, children are at a higher risk of losing reading skills than ever before. However, reading at least 20 minutes a day can significantly boost vocabulary and prevent learning loss.

To keep children in rural America learning this summer, Save the Children is hosting a 100 Days of Reading challenge. What is the 100 Days of Reading Challenge?

Save the Children challenges children and families to read at least 20 minutes every day from June 1 – September 8 (World Literacy Day). To help, Save the Children is providing partners with resources, tools, and funding to support a local reading challenge in their community as a fun way to encourage reading all summer long. What do challenge hosts need to do? Click here to find out at the D5110 website.
