School Wide Reading Competition

School Wide Reading Competition
Posted on 03/15/2016

The Peabody School March Madness Reading began on Wednesday, March 2nd and will run through Friday, April 1st.

  • Students will earn points for their team based on the number of minutes read daily at home during March Madness. Each student will log their daily reading onto the March Madness Reading Log.

  • Students will hand in the paper copy of their reading log to their classroom teacher every Friday morning. Students should continue to log their weekly minutes and hand them in each Friday morning.

  • Team points will be tallied and recorded every week onto a large graph in the main hallway. Books read in school are not eligible for points.

  • Books read as a part of nightly reading can be counted. (March Madness reading does not have to be in addition to regular home reading, although we hope students will be more inclined to read.)

  • There will be a separate point system for grades K-1 and 2-5.

Point System 

PointsRead a book (or have it read to you in gr. K and 1) and record your daily minutes read onto the March Madness Reading Log. A weekly reading log will be sent home every Friday (as well as at the start of the contest on Monday, 3/2).

  • Points will be based on the number of minutes read weekly by each class.
    • K & 1: Every 15 minutes =1 point
    • Grades 2 – 5: Every 30 minutes = 1 point
