As it’s the start of a new term, we are all ramping up our efforts in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.
Many of us have attempted this challenge in previous years, but not everyone has acheived the target of reading 20 books yet. So we have decided to really “give it a go” this year. We have worked out some individual and class rewards as we hit small targets on our way to 20 books each.
Here are some photos of us in our morning DEAR (drop everything and read) session today. We look like we should be able to reach 20 books each no trouble don’t we?
Every morning we have Silent Reading for 15 minutes – this gives a chance to read every day. This is a big help because we are all involved in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.
The PRC is a yearly challenge to read 20 books – 15 must be from a challenge list, and 5 can be your own choice. We have lots of the PRC books in our classroom book corner and we have put them all out on a table so they are easy to find.
We can also borrow books from the school Library and read them in Silent Reading time as well.
With so many books around , the only question is …….. how can we stop reading at just 20????
