Mind Growth Education

Mind Growth Education offers an interactive and fun reading log/incentive program, through one of three annual membership options. Currently, we are offering our first exciting program entitled “Read Across Canada” where a student records the number of minutes they’ve read at home or in their classroom on a daily basis by signing into their Mind Growth Education account. The program automatically converts the student’s minutes into kilometres and advances the student on their adventure across Canada, through various towns and cities to form a route that spans from Victoria, BC to through every province in the lower part of Canada, and back again, through the higher part of Canada, which ends in Whitehorse, Yukon. Every time a student arrives at one of the major points, a little blurb pops up with educational facts about that city or town. We also offer many useful and relatable educational resources for purchase on our website. We are wanting to offer four programs in the near future: “Read Across the World”, “Read Across the United States”, “Read Across the Solar System” and “Read Across Canada - Indigenous version”. We also offer a "Read-A-Thon" fundraiser program for schools!
