I have a fun and FREE classroom reading challenge for you! I’ve included a motivation chart, parent letter, and all student materials!
Anyone else feel like their class is starting spring fever waaaaaay too early? OMG. Last week, my students seemed totally disengaged during reading. This may partly be because we have delved deeply into informational book reading and they aren’t reading nearly as much literature as they were a couple of months ago. I feel like their reading stamina is slipping a little because they flipping through books rather than getting lost in them. I decided it is time to reinvigorate! Today I announced our Chapter Book Challenge! The best part for YOU is that you can download all of my materials for this for FREE (info at the bottom of the post).First, I sent home the following letter to parents:
My rules: I require the students to read chapter books at their Fountas & Pinnell level – this includes the level above and the level below (i.e. L, M, N). The student must write a reading response afterwards. The response is aligned to the 2nd grade Common Core standards. An adult must sign it. Sorry kids, no cheatsies!
