Reading 20 minutes a day, every day makes it possible for you to read almost 2 million words in a year. Have you been reading every day? If you have you have probably read at least a million words by March. A good way to measure how many words you have read is ta take and pass a Reading Counts test. So be sure and take tests on all the books you read. If you read a book without a test, please fill out the Reading Log on Mrs. Roberts blog and she will see if she can determine the amount of words in the book.
In March, all students who have read a million words will be invited to the Media Center for a Continental Breakfast. They will receive a certificate; have their picture taken with the principal; receive a free book and a small gift bag. The student in each grade level who has read the most words will receive an Amazon Kindle.
