“Million Word Challenge”
This year, students will be challenged with the “Million Word Challenge”. ( Modified, of course, for our younger students.)
Some highlights of the program:
Classrooms participate in quarterly classroom goals set as a class. Rewards are given to each classroom that meets their goal. Rewards may include sweet treats, extra recess, restaurant coupons, etc.
- Once a child has completed between 5-10 books, teachers will give the students a book report sheet and tell them which book, from the ones they have read, they are to conduct the book report on. Teachers may also choose to use alternative reporting activities. For example: oral reports, book talks, group sharing, book displays, etc.
