"The students I teach don’t usually end up with a trophy at the end of the year, but I’ve got a few here who are giving some of the other students in their class a run for their money! We read 8,000 pages, which is phenomenal for any students and especially dyslexic students." -- Connie Bagley, Dyslexia Specialist

Cheer on the reading!

The Great Reading Games gives students with reading difficulties a chance to be recognized for their efforts and improve their reading success! You can encourage these readers through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with your words, videos or pictures. #GRG18
