Literacy Pro Rewards Reading

Congratulations to our Year 3-6 students for their fantastic reading achievements! We recently celebrated our end of Semester 1 Scholastic Literacy Pro Awards and the Term 2 Millionaires Party. Collectively across the College students have passed 21,203 Lexile quizzes and read 78,159,694 words, which is a testament to their hard work and consistent reading. Our Gold Gallery is currently the largest it’s ever been with 86 students having reached this end of year Literacy Pro goal already.

This term students are encouraged to aim for the Silver Award level by earning 50 points for Year 3 students and earning 75 points for Year 4-6 students. Whatever level the students are currently sitting on, now is a great time to build consistent home reading reading habits and to build excitement for reading. We love to see students making progress and to see their confidence and comprehension skills developing as a result.

Reading is a fundamental skill that opens the doors to a world of knowledge, imagination and creativity. Regular reading improves concentration and memory, cultivating empathy and experiences, as students see what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes. Alongside our amazing Library collection, the Lexile collection offers a wide range of eBooks, picture books, graphic novels, fiction and non-fiction titles for students to choose from. Choice is a key element of the program as students select books in their interest areas. To broaden reading options we also developed the Book Hooks Blog, which allows students to complete reviews and to be rewarded for books without a Lexile quiz – adding an extra layer of motivation for students to read widely. The sky’s the limit with the Literacy Pro program at GCC!

The Millionaires Club

The Millionaires Club is another incentive we developed beyond the program to celebrate the students’ amazing dedication to reading. Students join the Millionaires Club when they have read 25,000 words and they receive certificates at various milestones along their journey toward the reading of 1,000,000 words. We currently have the following number of students in the Millionaires Club across Year 3-6:

Level 1 – 25,000 words read : 41 students
Level 2 – 50,000 words read :  49 students
Level 3 – 100,000 words read : 80 students
Level 4 –  250,000 words read : 66 students
Level 5 – 500,000 words read : 19 students
Millionaire Readers : 12 students

A shout out to the students who have read over 1 million words so far this year!
