This year I am at a school that does not have AR. I have always used AR and wasn't sure what I wanted to use this year to motivate students to read. I found out that several of the teachers at my school completed the 40 Book Challenge last year and I am hoping to get all teachers on board this year.
As Instructional Coach I hope to encourage and support my teachers with motivating their students to READ! :) To help address this I created my newest FOREVER FREEBIE!
The 40 Book Challenge Freebie Pack includes a Reading Log for students to complete as they read selected genres. Students are to write the title of the books read in each of the boxes. I have included a Reading Log in cursive in color and BW along with one in Print for the primary grades also in color and BW. To motivate students I created bracelets for them to wear when they have read 5, 10, 20, 30, and 40 books.
I plan to suggest to my teachers to require students to keep their Reading Log in their Reading folder/notebook or Independent Reading Book Bin. I created the bands in BW so you could save on color ink by printing them on different colored paper.
I would love to hear how you use or used the 40 Book Challenge in your classroom!
