This 40 book challenge is broken down by the nine weeks. Fourth and Fifth graders will read ten books a nine weeks. Second and third graders will read 7-8 per nine weeks for a total of 30 books. This can be adapted to fit your school. It is a great way to get students reading a variety of types of books. Sample report ideas are also provided if you would like for students to be responsible for their reading. This was adapted from Donalyn Miller's challenge in "The Book Whisperer."
