Today I received two free copies (gorgeous new ones!) of The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan. This is the third and final book in The Kane Chronicles. Since the library already has its own copy, I have decided that I will give them away--one to a fourth grader, and one to a fifth grader.
It did not seem fair to me to count up AR (Accelerated Reader) points from the whole year for the competition. Instead, the students (one in fourth, the other in fifth) who earn the most AR points by February 21st will receive this fabulous book for free to keep forever.
Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors--and I know many of the students here at Silas love his books, too! Show me what you can do, readers!
I always knew I had hardworking and intelligent students, but I was amazed when some students finished ALL of the Readermania titles before winter break. They have asked me to compile another list of books to read as a challenge. These titles will not count toward Readermania books read, but are here in case you finish all of your Readermania books and are looking for something new to read!
