4th Quarter Reading Challenge
Your child's goal: Read as many books as possible between now and May 19th. Reading logs must be turned in to Ms. Knight no later than Tuesday, May 23rd. We’ll have prizes for those who read the most in each grade level, and every participant will receive recognition!
All students have received reading logs. You can also print out a reading log here. (If your child reads more than 50 books, you can continue recording books on this blank reading log.) List books as you complete them. Remember that books can be counted only once, and only books finished should be recorded.
