S.W.L. Reading Challenge

 

As part of our school-wide literacy initiative, we will once again be holding our S.W.L. Reading Challenge!  The reading challenge is for all students and will be partly an individual initiative and partly a class and school initiative.  This is how it will work:

  • Students will be encouraged to read as many eBooks and novels as possible each month.  They will record what they have read by going to our school website and filling out the Google Form. eBooks Google Form or Google Novel Form
  • The results will be tracked and each month, at assembly, we will hand out a certificate to the student in each grade who has read the most books for that month.   If there is a tie, then more than one certificate may be handed out per grade.
  • Additionally, we will track how students are doing as a class.  The class that reads the most books by the end of the year will win a pizza party!  
  • Our school goal is to read 100,000 eBook pages and 3500 novels by the end of the school year.
  • To keep students informed of our progress, we will periodically put updates on the morning announcements, and create a bar graph to be posted in the library that will track the progress for both eBooks and novels.
  • Choosing a novel can sometimes be the hardest part of a book challenge, so to help the students make informed choices, there will be a recommendation board in the Learning Commons.  Students can choose a figure/speech bubble, colour and make it their own, and post their recommendation(s).  These little figures/bubbles will be available in the Learning Commons and classrooms.

We hope that you will be as excited as we are about this initiative and hope that it will appeal to our students' sense of competition and foster a love of reading in the process.  
Thank you in advance for all of your support!  Please share this information with your children at the beginning of December so we can get things moving as soon as possible.
