This Reach for the Stars 500 page reading challenge was so fun to implement in my classroom. I had each of my five class periods compete to see which class could have every member reach the stars before the other classes.
This pack includes figures that students can choose from and write their names on, a block poster that is large enough to cover a bulletin board, which helps create a positive and encouraging reading atmosphere, teacher and student directions, and tips for motivating and encouraging reluctant readers.
Also included for teachers is a reading record to help you track all of your student's individual reading. I have 90 students and could easily track each student's reading by filling out the form each Friday and clipping the forms directly in my grade book.
Create an atmosphere of excitement around independent reading with the Reach for the Stars 500 page challenge!
