We only have two and a bit weeks of school in March but that doesn’t mean that we can’t do a whole reading challenge. In fact, everyone will have SO much free time I should make this one longer! (just kidding)
In the spirit of this month’s Spring Break, the March Reading Challenge invites us to combine our love of reading with our love of the other activities we do. Books about hobbies, sports, music, whatever you like to do in you spare time (other than reading… or maybe including reading?) are what we’re looking for this month.
If you’re just joining the fun, here’s how to participate:
- Download the March Reading Challenge and print it.
- Start reading! Choose books that match the categories in the challenge and write down the titles as you complete them. You must read these books in March. (There is no length/difficulty requirement. Choose books that interest you, or that are an interesting stretch.)
- If you finish this month’s challenge, write your name on your sheet and hand it in to Mme Brogan in the library. There will be a draw for a prize for students who complete each month’s challenge.
I will create a new challenge each month from now until June. There will be a special prize draw for readers who completed and handed in all 6 challenges.
Read on for the March edition of the Quilchena Reaching Challenge:
We enjoy spending our time reading but it’s not the only thing we do for fun. Sometimes it’s fun to combine pastimes and read books about our other activities! We get a particular pleasure from spending time in a story that deals with subject matter we already know about. On the flip-side, when we read about an activity that is new to us, we get to experience a bit of what it’s like to be part of that community; it can be fascinating and inspiring.
March is also the month of the vernal equinox. It’s a good time to reflect on the balance in our lives.
1. A book about a sport.
2. A book that features a game.
3. A book about music.
4. A book about a pet (or pets.)
5. A story that is told from multiple perspectives.
The Quilchena Reading Challenges are for all students, teachers, and parents. The categories are designed to be applicable to any and all reading levels. As a reader, you get to choose how long, how hard, and in what format the books are to complete this challenge. I trust you to make good choices for yourself.
