Beanstack and Race2Read

Scholars should log their minutes in Beanstack daily or weekly. All we ask is that you read for 20 minutes a day. If you read for 20 minutes and log those minutes in Beanstack daily you will have 100 minutes for the week. There are prizes to earn for reading and logging your minutes. I will give away gift cards on 2 Fridays of each month to the students logging the most points. I will also have a free laptop or I-pad at the end of the year for the student with 5000 minutes or more logged for the year.
