The R.E.D. Zone Give Me 20 Reading Challenge

To encourage early readers, each spring and fall we offer the Give Me 20 Challenge to our teachers and parents. The goal of the challenge is to build reading-readiness skills and develop an at-home reading routine over an eight-week period. The challenge is open to anyone who has a preschooler-it can be done individually or in the classroom-no restrictions.


New to Give Me Twenty? Not a problem. Here is a crash course on how the challenge works:
