Home Reading Club
The purpose of HRC is to instill a love of reading in all our students. We want every MacArthur student to become a Super Reader!
To become a Super Reader, students must:
*Read a minimum of 20 days a month
*Read for 15 minutes (K-1st) or 20 minutes (2nd-5th) each day
*Fill out the daily reading log and turn it in ON TIME! Click on the tab for a blank Reading Log.
Students will receive a prize EVERY month they turn in their reading log on time. They will also have 3 opportunities throughout the year to win raffle prizes at Call to Order. Students must read every month to be invited to the end-of-year extravaganza. Each class that completes the program with 100% participation will receive an ice cream party at the end of the year. Yummy!
Due to budget restrictions, students will no longer receive a Super Reader t-shirt.
Book Fair Jungle: Elephants, Tigers, and Books, Oh My!
Escape into the wilds of reading at our next Scholastic Book Fair, February 3rd– 7th. Explore new books and shop amidst an exotic jungle theme as you begin your next great reading adventure!
Each class will have an opportunity to visit the book fair. Volunteers are needed! Please e-mail Rebecca Davis to sign-up: firstname.lastname@example.org.
