Reading Challenge

Hasto’s Hot Off the Press Literacy Newsletter

Welcome back North Broad Falcons and families! Here’s to another successful school year! Each year at North Broad we launch a reading challenge program. The program is one of the many ways we, as North Broad teachers, promote a passion for literacy. Students are required to read a minimum of 25 books in order to participate in our water carnival and field day each June. In addition to individualized reading goals, a school wide reading goal is also established. For the 2016-17 school year, our goal is to read at least 33,000 books. We are excited to challenge ourselves with this rigorous, but attainable goal!

Every year, we establish a new theme for our reading challenge. Some past themes have included, Olympic ReadersWheel of Literacy, and BookopolyThis year’s theme is Elect to Read. Each month, students will vote on which genre to read. The genre with the highest number of votes will be announced as the genre of choice at our monthly citizenship assembly.  Genres will range from a variety of non-fiction and fiction choices.

The reading challenge is held in conjunction with our monthly citizenship assembly. At each assembly, students who have attained their 25 book goal are recognized and the school wide book total is updated. 

I look forward to educating students about the voting process during this Presidential year, and more importantly, encouraging them to read copious amounts of books from across all literacy genres!


Happy Reading!
