This is a social/geography based home reading mapping program. It is student led and has an at your own pace design. I created it to tie into the Grade 3 Social Studies Program in Alberta Canada but you could be adapted to any grade and any world travels. Student earn kilometers for minutes read and record their reading on logs based on specific trips. For this program 20 minutes = 300kms but that can be edited. Once the amount of km (minutes) is earned for the trip, students return log to teacher and they can move their pin on a classroom map to destination earned. This resource does not include any leveled reading books just the program letter and trip logs.
The product includes:
- Parent letter explaining the program (editable in word)
- Suggestion to include reading tips in parent letter (You can put your own suggestiosn in)
- 5 trips created from Clagary to Ottawa, Ottawa to Lima, Lima to Kiev, Kiev to Tunis, Tunis to New Delhi (Grade 3 Social Studies Alberta)
- Bonus trip logs for students who read New Delhi early and they get to map their own reading journey.
**** This program could be edited to have trips to provinces, states and any other countries in the world.
I hope you enjoy this program as much as I do!
