Ravenous Readers

Custom Glitter Text

So far, our fourth graders have read a total of 15,728 minutes! I have a little wager going with the students. Inspired by other teachers and administrators around the world who have done wacky things to motivate their students, I have agreed to SLEEP ON THE ROOF OF THE SCHOOL if our students read 250,000 minutes by June 15. We keep a daily tally of our reading minutes and will update the total on our blog regularly.

Please comment! Is there something you read or are reading this year that you REALLY liked? If so, what is it? What do you like about it? Are there any books or series that you anticipate reading?  Please share your thoughts with us!
