Reading Challenge

Mr. Albrecht's March Madness Reading Challenge

Starting on March 9th, and lasting until we celebrate PARP (Parents As Reading Partners) week in April, we are going to have a new independent reading challenge. Each week, parents will fill out a reading log with how many minutes of independent reading their child has done.

We recommend the following at-home independent reading (Level 1 children can count time that they are being read to):

Level 1: Grades K-2 - 10-20 minutes

Level 2: Grades 3-5 - 20-30 minutes

Level 3: Grades 6-8 - 30+ minutes


Each week, we will calculate the average number of minutes per child and award prizes each week in each of the three levels listed above.

Week 1: March 9th - March 15th

Week 2: March 16th - March 22nd

Week 3: March 23rd - March 29th

Week 4: March 30th - April 5th

Week 5: April 6th - April 12th

Week 6: April 13th - April 19th


The class in each level with the highest average at the end of the six weeks will be our grand prize winners and they will receive a special lunch treat.
