Reading Expedition: Read Around the World

 

Reading Explorer Training: February 2020

Reading Week: Reading Around the World: February 24 - 28, 2020

 

Oak Point I Love to Read Month is in February. We are celebrating with a very important Journey to travel the Globe! Oak Point's Journey is to Read Around the World! The entire month of February, our reading explorers will be in training, preparing for our Reading Week at school from February 24 to 28.   

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP TRAIN YOUR READING EXPLORER?

Beginning in February:

  • See that your reading explorer reads every day and marks it on the calendar in the information packet These will help prepare them for the Reading Expedition to Read Around the World later in the month.
  • Record your minutes each day on the calendar.
  • At the end of the month, turn in the completed calendar from the information packet to earn additional tickets for your team.  

 

The week of February 24‐28

  • Encourage your reading Explorer to participate in the spirit days during the week of the Oak Point Reading Expedition!
  • Complete the reading challenges listed on the calendar and have your reading explorer report to their Reading Guide.

 

HOW THE READING WEEK- READ AROUND THE WORLD works:

  • Each day of the Reading Week, reading explorers will report to their Reading Guide/classroom teacher if they’ve completed the reading event listed on the calendar.  If so, they will receive one ticket toward their team’s ticket count.
  • At the end of every day, a ticket count map poster will be updated so reading explorers can see their team’s ticket count and how they compare with the rest of the school.
  • At the end of the month, turn in the completed calendar from the information packet to earn additional tickets for your team.
  • While each classroom will receive a reward for participating in the Reading Week, only the teams/classrooms with the highest ticket count in each grade will reach the end of the Earth with a special prize!
