The AR read-a-thons are December 16 and December 18. You can invite students to bring in a blanket or stuffed animal. They simply spend the morning reading, whether it be read alouds, listening to books online, or reading with buddies. You can even buddy up with other classes!

We are going to reward students and teachers that earn the most AR points during these days! After all of that reading, enjoy a Christmas movie in the afternoon together! Below is a reading log that you can use for the event! There will be more of these in the work room this week. Take one and make copies for your class!
