Students are given a point handout at the beginning of the school year. Students must earn 70 points total. Each student is able to select books from various point levels based on interests. Some books have a higher point value than other books. Students must complete one of four activities once the book has been read to receive the points. This activity is an easy way to integrate social media and technology throughout the year into the library.
Points range from one to five and each point value includes several different book categories for students to select.
This activity could also be distributed at the end of the school year as a way to avoid the summer slide in reading. Students could turn the activity in during open house to the previous teacher or new grade level teacher.
