The Sioux Falls Christian annual Reading Extravaganza is ready to begin. We will be having a special evening for students & their parents to help encourage the students to read. See the newsletter for more information.
Reading Extravaganza Instructions & Guidelines
Attached to this letter you will find four weekly reading logs to record the amount of time your child reads.
Reading that is done before and after school hours may be counted. NO reading done during school will be counted toward weekly reading goals.
Reading logs must be turned in each Tuesday to their classroom teachers or they will not be given credit!
Reading periods should be logged in 15 minute increments.
Time spent listening to someone else read and reading independently is counted; the student should NOT be doing other activities while being read to. The student and the parent should sign the reading log sheet to ensure accuracy. The weekly reading log runs from Tuesday through the following Monday and should be brought to the teacher each Tuesday.
Weekly rewards will be given to all classes who meet their classroom reading and personal goals. Each classroom teacher will determine if their goals have been met using the reading logs received on Tuesdays. The weekly rewards will include:
Week 1 Candy or Bubble Gum Day
Week 2 Game Day
Week 3 Movie Day in your PJ’s
Week 4 Awards Ceremony & Treats Given
There will NOT be prizes given to the top two students in each classroom this year; instead the top class in each grade will have a pizza party in March as long as they met their goal each week.
Prize drawings – each student can enter his/her name into a drawing each time that they meet their individual weekly reading goals. Six prizes will be awarded per grade.
Students will also have an opportunity to win a gift card to the Juice Stop so try your best all month for a chance to win a smoothie!

Monday, March 4th – Last day for students to log reading time
Tuesday, March 5th – Final day for reading logs to be turned into teachers
