OJCS Reading Challenge

OJCS Reading Challenge 2019-2020

 

The OJCS Reading Challenge is back, but this year bigger and better!  

Our Grade 1 classroom goal is to read 300 books by the end of May. In order for your child to get class book tallies towards our goal, each student must complete a book review.  When we achieve our goal, we will be eligible for one of the following prizes listed below.

      The prizes this year will be;

  • an end-of-year book-based film screening or book-themed dress-up party in each classroom that meets their goals.  The library will provide each class with popcorn and candy treats.
  • Middle school will once again compete for an escape room to create an added incentive.    
  • Small prizes will be given out to each student who gets a Bingo on the genre bingo sheet that goes with the challenge.

For grades K-4 choose the methods that work best for your child:

The book review must contain the following:

  1. Tell us the title and author of your book.
  2. Include a short description of your favourite part.
  3. How many stars would you give it?
  4. Would you recommend it to a friend?

We have been participating in this challenge since November. These book reviews can be done at home or at school. I wanted to make this information available to you in case your child would like to add a book review from the comfort of their home.

Happy Reading!
