School-wide Reading Incentive
Oh, the Places You’ll Go
Students at Waukee Elementary will participating in their annual Reading Incentive Challenge, from Monday, April 2nd through Friday, May 4th. This year’s theme is “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”. Students will be logging their minutes spent reading on a daily basis and earning stamps for their reading passport when they meet their goals. Grade level goals are as follows: PK-2 ~100 minutes per week per student, 3rd grade ~ 150 minutes per week per student, 4th and 5th grade ~ 200 minutes per week per student. The school goal is 700,00 minutes/miles ~ 28 times around the world! (FYI: It is almost 25,000 miles around the world.)
Individual classes may be determining a class goal in order to earn additional rewards like reading outside or reading with another class. Our final celebration will be a school-wide DEAR and read outside. Let’s get reading!
