Building Stamina…counting our minutes!

on December 1, 2014

Between my three classes (6A, 6B, 6C) students are competing during silent reading.  Every day we silent read a book of our choice in class.  Students have the potential to read up to 25 minutes, but as the teacher I can cut time short if students are off task.  At the end of class, we graph the number of minutes we were able to read for that class.  Classes are competing against each other in order to win the Reading Stamina Graphing Contest! We are exactly half way through the contest and it is neck and neck!  Before winter break, we will add up the minutes once more to find out our winning class.  That class can decide together on what type of party they would like to have to celebrate! Students can practice their reading stamina by reading at home each night.  Also keeping up to date with their reading fluency each night helps too!
