Engage all your students in the First Minister’s Reading Challenge via ebooks in Glow

FMRC header for blog

RM Books is delighted to be supporting the First Minister’s Reading Challenge – Scotland’s brand-new reading initiative to encourage all pupils in Primary 4-7 to develop a life-long love of reading – through your ebook platform within Glow.

FMRC Intro 4All students within schools in Scotland have 24/7 access to borrow and read ebooks from their school’s RM Books elibrary via their Glow launch pad, so delivering the First Minister’s Reading Challenge couldn’t be easier!

Ebook versions of the Scottish Book Trust’s recommended titles are available for cost-effective rental and RM Books’ reading reports make it easy for schools to complete their First Minister’s Reading Challenge Reading Passports.

There are lots of additional benefits of using the RM Books ebook system within Glow to deliver this challenge:

  • Reading ebooks can engage students who do not normally see themselves as readers – great for encouraging your reluctant readers to take those first steps to reading.
  • With our offline apps, students can read their chosen ebook anytime, anywhere… not just in the classroom.
  • Our short-term rental options make using RM Books a cost-effective way of providing a wide range of titles for students to choose from.
  • Our reporting facility allows you to track reading progress and support pupils in their reading journey.

FMRC Intro 3RM Books is proven to improve reading and attitudes to reading based on a recent 40-school study by the National Literacy Trust.

If you want to take part in the First Minister’s Reading Challenge, firstly you will need to register your school.

Then you have the fun of selecting the titles you would like your students to read on RM Books, and support them on their Reading Journey. You can choose titles one-by-one from the recommended list, or speed the process up by renting the two reading challenge book packs covering all ebook titles.

Happy Reading!
