The 2019 Great Reading Games at Woodlynde School are in Full Swing!
Currently, Woodlynde is in 15th place nationally with a score of 123,181 points in the 2019 Learning Ally's Great Reading Games.
Our top scorers are in Grades 5 and 6, but the Great Reading Games are open to all Woodlynde Students, Grades K-12. We encourage our students to use the Learning Ally link to listen to audio books with a human who reads with excellent expression of a wide range of books. The Great Reading Games is a challenge to all schools across the country from January 7 through February 23. Our newest challenge is the "Purdy" challenge, Mr. Purdy, Woodlynde School's Athletic Director, wants students to meet or beat his score for the week--either in number of minutes, number of pages, or number of days! Each week, the top ten students are announced in Morning Assembly and all students who use Learning Ally with some consistency earn a Learning Ally lanyard.
