Boy reading books by school lockerOur Reading Challenge kicked off Saturday, February 1st. Each grade level is tasked to reach a goal of words read by April 30th.

Kindergarten’s grade level goal: 100,000 words.
1st and 2nd grade level goals: 1 million words.
3rd, 4th, & 5th grade’s goals: 5 million words.
… for a school-wide total of 17.1 million words.

Schoolwide we are using the resource arbookfind.com to check on the number of words for a given book.

Remember that just 20 minutes of reading per night will help us reach our goal.  And in the words of Dr. Seuss: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
