Book Bonanza Begins September 5th!

By phillipss  

Students (FYI for Parents),

          Your 5th grade teachers are so excited to offer a fun, competitive reading competition!  We are calling this competition the 5th Grade Book Bonanza.  This contest is going to last from September 5th when we return from Labor Day weekend and last until the end of the trimester on November 9th.  The purpose of the contest is to read as many books as you can to contribute to your triad’s overall points.  The list below is what the contest will consist of, along with the rules. 

  • Who: All 5th grade students, you will be on a team with your triad and you will be competing against other triads
  • When: September 5th-November 9th
  • What: a friendly competition among the triads to read as many books as you possibly can
  • Why: to read, read, read, to receive the traveling book trophy, and to earn a popsicle party at the end of the trimester
  • Where: WIS, home, the bus, at your brother’s soccer game-read whenever you have free time!
  • Rules
    • Every book must be within your level (as determined by your LA teacher)
    • Every 300 pages counts as one book
      • 1-300 pages = 1 book
      • 301-600 pages= 2 books
      • 601-900 pages= 3 books
      • 900 + pages = 4 books
    • Audio books can count, but you MUST follow along with the book while it is being read
    • Each time you finish a book, you will create a small book sign to be displayed. Your book cannot count until you have returned the sign to your LA teacher. 
    • Your homeroom teacher may give you an extra requirement (for example: AR quiz), but that will be left up to each individual triad’s LA teacher.

Good luck and happy reading!
