To elementary schoolers (do we have any here?): Learning to read well will come in very useful in the rest of life. The easiest way to learn is by reading a lot of fiction. You’ll eventually figure out the meanings of new words based on context. Also, if your school does do the ‘reading tests’ with raffle draw prizes, it’s entirely possible to win all the prizes by flooding the raffle box with your tickets.
I still remember the glares my classmates shot me as I slowly wrote my name on like 200 tickets and poured them into the box lol.
