Newly updated (June 2018)! Every classroom is different. Now you can customize this document to fit the needs of your own individual readers! List books that fit your student's level and more!
This product includes everything to get you started on the 40 Book Challenge (inspired by the book, The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller)! The challenge encourages readers to simply read (and write about their reading too). This product stresses this philosophy and provides the tools you need to carry this vision out.
