Monthly engaging and rigorous challenges for students to practice their reading and writing skills. Students practice theme, main idea and detail, compare and contrast, context clues, inferencing, point of view, text structure, text features, character traits, and literal/nonliteral meanings.
Each challenge has a reading or writing component to it.
Each month the students will be given a challenge that goes with the theme that month. These challenges will take a day or two. They are highly rigorous and extremely engaging to the children. When they complete all the challenges they will earn something each month.
These challenges are great for review, assessment, and reteaching.
Most challenges have a google drive version as well.

After completing the challenge they earn something related to the month and go to the next. The challenges are checked by you (answer key provided). They do not have to do the challenges in order. When they are done I set up a special Holiday themed spot with books, holiday themed games, and anything fun!
These are great one or two day challenge that is fun and engaging to students while being rigorous and practices many skills that students need!
