My students need 50 children's books such as "Green Eggs and Ham" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" to earn for Read Across America and to read during silent reading time.
An exciting reading time is drawing nearer to the students of my classroom. The best time to be a reader in Snowville is during the months of January through March. Why do you ask? Have you heard of Read Across America? It is the celebration of the great children's author, Dr. Seuss!
I have 26 students in my classroom who come from all walks of live.
Kids who are picked up by their stay-at-home parents to students who rarely see their parents because they work all the time. I have students whose parents take them to the library weekly and spend several hours a week reading to them. Unfortunately, I also have students who do not have any sort of books at all in their own homes. This needs to be changed! One way that I change that is by having my students participate in a reading challenge.
Are you interested yet? The challenge is quite simple. The students in my classroom are challenged to read over 25,000 miles before I read 5,000 miles Across America. I'm sure you have another question: how does a person read across America? Again, quite simple. Each page of a book that is read is equal to one mile! The students' have reading logs that they keep track of the pages that they've read out of books, magazines, basically anything that they get their hands on to read. For each 100 pages they read, they earn a plane that tells them how far they have traveled. I read, have a reading log, and earn a car for every 100 pages I read as well. For each child who reads over 1,000 miles, they earn a free book from several classics that I have chosen such as Green Eggs and Ham, The Tale of Despereaux, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I choose books that I know the kids are already excited about, plus books that are timeless classics.
I need your help in order to ensure that my students are excited about reading.
It would be fantastic to have the books visible for the students so they can have an idea of what book they would like to read for. I love this time of year because the kids really do become excited and invested in a cause: to beat their teacher! I create a bulletin board that is posted right outside our door so that everyone in the school knows how my students are doing. Please help make this the best year yet!Read More
