Wiederstein's Reading Program 2019-2020

  • Purpose

    The goal is to help ALL students be successful with their reading habits, and to develop an intrinsic love for reading.


    How It Works:

    • Each 9-week grading period, your child's teacher will set a reading goal. It may be a total number of books to read or total number of minutes. 
      • Reading goals will differ with each grade level. Goals may also differ with each student.
      • For questions about reading goals, please ask your child's teacher.
    •  At the end of the 9-week grading period, students will be recognized for meeting their reading goal.
      • They will be recognized in the classroom.
      • They will be recognized in the library.
      • They will place a star on the "Wiederstein's Star Readers" bulletin board outside of the library.
    • In December, all students will celebrate reading by attending a fun event in the library.
      • We will also recognize and celebrate students' reading successes.
      • Awards and prizes will be given out.
    • In May, students who meet at least THREE out of the FOUR 9-week reading goals will get to attend Water Fest!

     

     Monthly Reading Challenges:

    • Each month, starting in October, a reading challenge will be sent home.
    • The reading challenges consists of different and fun ways to read.
    • Students who complete the challenges will earn a small reward.
    • The reading challenges are optional, but do work with your child's reading goals.
