Words read is one of the most important indicators of reading growth.

By reading, students practice critical building blocks of reading mastery. They have greater vocabulary knowledge, exposure to a wider variety of texts, and increased reading fluency.

Playing more episodes means your students spend more time reading. By the end of the year, they've become strong readers and leaders.

How Will We Know We Won?

We’ve built special badges to help you know how many words your students have read. We have three tiers for badging. Each time you hit a new level, you’ll earn another badge. You’ll find these badges in the “Stats and Badges” section tab.

Individual Badges

These are your student`s individual benchmarks. As they progress through the game, we award different badges as they reach new levels of word count.

Classroom Badges

These are your classroom stats. Your students work together to reach a collective goal of one million words.

National Badges

Don’t stop at one million words! By playing more of our games (we have three!), you have a chance to be one of the top classrooms in the country.

Good news! If you started Read to Lead earlier this year, your first semester individual and classroom word counts will count towards the challenge. Check the “Class Stats” section to see where your class stands!

2) 11 to 20 students: 500,000 words
3) 21+ students: 1,000,000 words
