40 Book Challenge/AR

40 Book Challenge:

This year we will be doing the 40 Book Challenge.  I am challenging all students to read at least 40 books this year (on or above their grade level). Books do not have to be chapter books, however, they should NOT be easy readers.  Once a student has read his/her book, they may choose one assignment/activity to complete about the book they read.  Once they turn in their "assignment", they may add it to their personal chart in class.  Throughout the year, we will celebrate student successes with pizza parties and prizes. 


Students have three choices in order to have their book "count" towards their 40 books.  1:  They may take the AR test that goes along with their book; 2:  They may conference with me one-on-one to prove they read and understood their book; 3:  They can do a book talk in Flipgrid or Canvas. Students need to show that they read and understood the book.  As the students progress through the year, we may add more activities. 

Prizes: Students will keep track of their progress on a reading log  For every 5 books they read, they will "level up" and receive a smaller prize. Prizes include water bottle stickers, candy prizes, eat with teacher, and free time passes.  These pay change as the year goes on.
