Million Word Challenge

St. Anne School & Preschool Academy strives to foster a love of reading. Each school year, students are encouraged to participate in the “Million Word Challenge” (modified, of course, for our younger students).


Highlights of the program:

  • Students have a personal goal of reading 1 million words during the school year (September through May).

  • Classrooms participate in quarterly classroom goals set as a class. Rewards are given to each classroom that meets their goal. 

  • 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.
