Reading - 40 Book Challenge
The 40 book challenge is not my idea. It comes from Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer. Books must be from various genres and should be chapter books. Some books will count as more than one book. Students must read books that are within their reading level determined by Achieve3000 at school. Every 150 - 200 pages counts as a book. Encourage your child to read for 30 minutes every night. Set a timer, use a reading tracker app, whatever it takes. Students will then journal after in their writing journals. We will be keeping track the children's progress by regular Book Chat time with me, sharing their Reading Journals with me, Book Commercials for every 5 books and with the Book Reviews they create after each book.
