The 100 Books-this-Month Challenge

I resolve to read!

A challenge has been issued for January: The 100 Books-this-Month Challenge
This challenge encourages students to branch out and try new books, authors, and styles of writing. Students will be talking with other readers about books. They will broaden their horizons and discover books they might not find on their own.
Any book qualifies including picture books, nonfiction, poetry anthologies, or fiction.
Students will share titles via a social networking site called goodreads. Room 102 has created a bookshelf at goodreads to track our 100 class books. Students can follow classmates reviews and recommendations. 
Every book has the potential to connect students. We are building a community of readers. That's the best part of the challenge--the part that lasts long after the book ends.
Please encourage your child to read at home. 

Happy Readings!
