Reading Challenge

There is a a quote that says “Reading is like putting together a puzzle. The big picture becomes clearer as you go.” This wonderfully sums up what happens when we read. Our brains make connections with the text, the illustrations, and with our own life experiences. These connections are what makes reading come alive! This school year, we will be Connecting our Reading Piece by Piece, in the hopes that we will be able to reach a school-wide reading goal of ONE MILLION Minutes! How can we do that? Well, we will take it piece by piece!


Monthly Reading Calendar - Each month we will send home a reading calendar for you to keep track of your reading minutes. All you have to do is write down how many minutes you read each day, total it up at the end of the month, and return the calendar to your teacher. It helps if everyone has them turned in by the 5th day of the following month. We would like to challenge everyone to try to read (or be read to) 20 minutes a night.  


Monthly Class Rewards  - We plan to celebrate each piece of this journey. At the beginning of each new month, We will celebrate the number of minutes read so far. We will have different prizes for the class in each grade level that read the most minutes. Watch the calendar for each month’s exciting prize.


Connecting our Reading Puzzle - Outside the library, you will see a giant puzzle. When we total up the minutes at the end of the month, we will add a piece to our puzzle for every certain amount of minutes we’ve read. Slowly, we’ll start to see the puzzle come together. Once we reach our ONE MILLION minute goal, we’ll have a finished puzzle AND we will celebrate with a reading party day!


Are you ready to start making some reading connections? Are you ready to see how our reading fits together as a school? If so, then you should get started right NOW! Find something to read and help us meet our goal!
