Dear Parents,

This month, I’m presenting a challenge to the kids. As a class, can they read for a total of 20,000 minutes before the end of the school day on March 31st? Students may read by themselves, read to others or enjoy someone reading to them.

 

The students will keep track of their weekly reading minutes by completing a school reading graph and a home reading chart.  A running class total of the minutes will be recorded so the students can track their progress and see how close they are to reaching the goal. Please sign the home graph each week before it is returned on Mondays in their Circle Notebooks.

 

If the students are able to complete the reading challenge this month by March 31st, we will have an ice cream sundae party. In addition, there will be no homework for one week.

 

The challenge is on!  Happy Reading!

                                                                                          Mrs. McFarland

 

 

 

FYI – The breakdown of minutes for each student with 20 kids in the class would be 1000 minutes of reading for the month. If everyone read for 20 minutes in school, then they’d need to read for 25 minutes every night at home to achieve this goal.  To participate in the rewards, everyone needs to do his/her part at home and return the signed graphs each week for the minutes to count.
