Q: How does our reading log program work?
A: Teachers record the number of minutes they’ve read in class on Friday, April 22nd, 2022 by signing into their Mind Growth Education account. The program automatically converts their minutes into kilometres and advances their avatar on a virtual adventure across the World through various countries starting in Canada down to the eastern hemisphere and back up again through the Western Hemisphere and end in United States of America. Every time a class arrives at one of the major points on their adventure, a little blurb pops up with educational facts about that country. The students also get to earn badges and get printable worksheets as they progress on their reading journey. (Please note: For every 20 minutes, you will travel approx. 240 kilometres on the adventure map).

Q: Will one class be able to complete the reading challenge on its own? 
A: One class will not be able to read across the world in one day. The reading challenge is for the whole school to collectively accumulate enough reading minutes to complete the challenge. We cannot reveal the exact number of reading minutes it would take to complete the reading challenge but here’s a hint: it would take more than 1,000 minutes!

Q: What is included with the fee?
A: * A participation package will be sent to your school with a certificate of achievement + other goodies!
* Access to our digital event dashboard where you will find everything you need to promote the event within your school!
* One raffle entry for the grand prize.
* School wide subscription to our digital “Read Across the World” reading log program for every teacher (up to 30 classroom accounts).

Q: What if one of the teachers needs help (i.e. cannot remember his/her username and/or password). What to do?

Q: What is the importance of planting trees?
A: Trees give off oxygen that we need to breathe. Trees reduce the amount of storm water runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways and may reduce the effects of flooding. Many species of wildlife depend on trees for habitat. Trees provide food, protection, and homes for many birds and mammals.
