Some of my schools are promoting literacy and the library collections with a 40-book challenge for students in grades 2-6. The challenge is this: read 40 books from several different genres.
The books can be from the school library, home or the public library. Magazines, comics and newspapers can be counted.
Multi-story and series compilation books may count as 2 books, sometimes as 3 books.
Students are encouraged to read from different collections and not just plow through the entire series of Scooby-Doo! mysteries. And yes, OLA Forest of Reading books count! eBooks too!
Two booklets are used, one for grades 2-3, the other for grades 4-6.
