What must I do to join the KC 3 Reading team?

You must read at least 7 of the 10 nominated titles. Follow up your great reading by creating a project. This project should be student lead and created, with you doing all of your work. Projects can include, but are not limited to, posters, dioramas, scrapbook pages, and more! Please make sure you include a short summary of the book and of course, your name and classroom teachers' name.


See below for project examples!
