This week we launch our school-wide reading challenge!
Each teacher will decide on the number of books they want their class to aim to read from Nov 19th to May 1st as a group sum total. This number should be a challenge but still very much attainable.
There is a list of categories that will be handed out to help direct student choices across a wide range of genres. Each student (and teacher) will contribute to this class total, and when a book is finished, that student will post a brief book review on the school’s new library website (if the book was a library book.) https://theojcs.booksys.net/opac/ojcs/
The prize is an end-of-year pizza party where there is the optional component that students can come to school dressed as their favourite literary character. The second piece of this is that the students who meet or exceed reading from all of the categories will be recognized for their hard work and contribution to the class at an end-of-year assembly.
