100 Book Challenge
Procedures for Parents
Step 1: Sit with two to five books in a quiet area.
Step 2: Read consecutively for fifteen minutes. NO INTERRUPTIONS!
Step 3: Choose ONE book and discuss the weekly focus (i.e. characters and setting).
Step 4: Record (LOG) that SAME book as ONE STEP on your log sheet. Be sure to include the step number, title, level, date, and a Coach’s signature (you, the parent).
It is important to remember that it is the amount of time that we are counting, not the amount of books.
15 minutes = 1 step (1st grade requirement)
30 minutes = 2 steps
45 minutes = 3 steps
60 minutes = 4 steps
Students receive awards in class for different levels they reach. When they reach 100, 200,300 steps etc... they will receive a medal.
