    Not Highland or a Teacher? Keep reading...

     

    This is completely optional.

    First, check with your teacher/library to see if your school is doing something different.

    This is not about your reading level, grading or taking a test.

    It is only about setting a reading goal and reading more.

     

    Why should I do this?

    We just want you to read more!

    So why not EARN PRIZES along the way?

    Setting reading goals is step #1 in becoming a life-long reader & learner.

    One of the best ways to do that is to plan on reading!

    What are you curious about? What do you like?

    Start with those books.

     

    What do I read?

    Start in your school library. Ask your Library Assistant for help finding a great book.

    Also, go get a library card from the Plainview Public Library. They have a TON of books!

    Finally, get on SORA for eBooks & audiobooks! Click here for "how to" video.

    Ask your teacher if you are allowed to count audiobooks for your Reading Challenge.
