Can you complete the reading challenge and reach your class' animal?
All you have to do is READ!! Can you read every day?
This year to reward the children for practising their reading skills at home we are once again challenging the children to read as many times as they can at home and work their along the trail to reach their class animal.
Every child will be given a sticker bookmark which their teacher will keep in the classroom. Every Friday the teacher will collect and check each child’s reading diary and count how many times they have read to someone during the week at home. If they have read 4 or more times during the week at home they will receive a sticker on their bookmark.
In order for us to check how many times your child has read at home during the week we will require your help. Every time your child reads to someone at home just sign (writing mum, dad, nan, etc. is sufficient) and date your child’s reading diary so that we can reward your child when they have read 4 or more times during the week and ensure that they have every home read counted.
Once the children have achieved 6 stickers on their bookmark (for reading 4 or more times during the week for 6 weeks) they will move their name onto the first ‘6 reads’ space on the reading challenge display in the Unit 1 activity area. They will then receive a prize. The children will then work towards achieving 12 stickers on their bookmark (for reading 4 or more times during the week for 12 weeks) to move up to the second ’12 reads’ space, then again on to the third ’18 reads’ space, followed by the fourth ’24 reads’ space.
Finally, when the children have achieved their last set of six stickers on their bookmark they will move up to the final stage:
MEET YOUR CLASS ANIMAL - ‘30 READS’.
Once the children have reached these dizzy heights they will receive a book to reward their fantastic achievement and wonderful hard work.
