We are back to school and I’m so excited to have kicked off the January & February Book Challenge! As promised, here are some more resources:

I’m still undecided about how I’m going to do prizes. So far I’ve just told students that more info on prizes is still to be announced! I’m hoping that I can get a few local businesses to make some donations, like gift cards to the frozen yogurt shop and such. And maybe a Coke float party or something for students who reach a certain number of points. Like I said, I’m still thinking about that and trying to gauge how I think it’s going to play out a little before I lock myself into some prize scheme. 🙂

I’m very excited about using a Schoology group to communicate with participants — I can’t wait until our first “check-in” to see what the students are reading for the different tasks! I’m hoping that a lot of great recommendations will come of this!

  1. I’ve borrowed your challenge and made a few minor adjustments based on our collection and student population. Thank you SO much for sharing what you’ve done! I’m also undecided on prizes and will see how it goes!

  2. I, too, really like this concept for my middle school library! We do not do AR and I was wondering how to keep students “honest” about truly reading the books for the points. Any ideas? I would like to try this in the spring, if possible, but want to have as many kinks worked out as I can. Thanks! I love your website!
