I have attached a file with details about our 40 Book Challenge. My goal is to help encourage my students to become lifelong readers. That means building habits that they will use for a long time, from finding genres that they enjoy to carving out little snippets of spare time to sneak in a few pages when they get a chance. The only way for a person to become a reader is to read, so that is what we will do!
Reading 40 books in a school year boils down to making sure students have read 10 books every quarter. In the attachment you will see how it is broken down so that students will encounter a variety of genres, but the choice in titles is really up to them. My request is that they are both school appropriate. I will count read alouds and audiobooks for this challenge!
