We are launching our March Madness Reading Challenge! There are two parts: a school challenge and a home challenge, and both of these start TODAY! This program will run from Monday, March 9 - Friday, April 3.
The focus of this program is to help promote and strengthen reading stamina.
There is a special part of this challenge at home! Your child brought home a ziploc bag in his/her folder last week. The green reading log inside the ziploc bag explains how the home challenge works. Below you can find the information for the home challenge in case you misplaced it! Make sure to turn in your reading log completed by Friday, April 3! Students who earn at least 60 points at home will be able to attend the Basketball Bonanza on April 14th. The reading your child already does with his/her reading folder at home counts towards this goal. Make sure to keep a record on your green sheet!
Each day in the classroom we will read independently like we usually do. However, we will also discuss our reading as a class after we are finished each day in order to give ourselves points. The rubric for our points can be seen below:
Here is Caleb hanging up our first basketball! We earned a 3 today! We are amazing independent readers!
