March Madness in the Library!
March 4-April 4, 2016
Each student will have their own husky to move from checkpoint to checkpoint on their class map. Please keep the attached reading log and trail map in your child’s homework folder so he or she can move daily. Only the minutes that students read outside of class time count toward their mileage . Be sure to fill it out and sign it nightly.
Follow a musher! Read the Armchair Musher blog! Participate in our state’s greatest sport!! This website is absolutely amazing and we use it in our classrooms for all kinds of learning! Feel free to learn some things at home over Spring Break!
Parents, you are welcome to race your reader to Nome. See Mrs. Stegall for a sled dog and you can post your progress alongside your child’s on their classroom map! Parents who make it to Nome qualify for a drawing for Gary Paulson’s book, Winterdance! Same rules apply to you too! 30 minutes reading per checkpoint! Pick up a reading log and a dog for adults in the library!
We believe literacy is a lifelong habit, a great time to develop it is now! It’s never too late to start! So read along the trail with us as we travel by imagination to places faraway or close at hand!
