Lace up those running shoes! Grab you Gatorade! It's time to read a marathon!
Students are super motivated by this program. Students self-select a reading goal. They can choose to read a 5k (3 books), a 10K (6 books), a half marathon (13 books), or a marathon (26 books) over the course of the summer. They complete thought-provoking responses/reflections at each of the above benchmark distances and send their teacher a postcard bragging about their success.
This program includes a 15 page student book in both color and grayscale, two pages of teacher talk notes, 4 colored and grayscale postcards for student use (one for each distance), and colored postcards for teacher response. I also includes four colored and four grayscale celebratory certificates for student awards when they return to school in fall.
This is a teacher-tested and kid-approved reading program!
On your mark, get set, GOOOOOOO!
