What is Scholastic’s Read 100,000?
A school-wide reading challenge
Students log on to the Read 100,000 website and sign up to record the amount of time they’re reading
The link can be posted on the school website and/or Library website
Students are anonymous – all they need to enter is their first name and the teacher’s email address to register
Teachers will grant permission – only 1 email sent daily!!! Teacher selects the school & kids can start logging minutes within the week
Why should we?
Developed to recognize your readers & strengthen reading skills
Challenge encourages all kids to read
Tracking progress online is an easy way to see reading minutes add up
Increases parent awareness of reading
Enhance relationships within school community
