OME Reading Brag Tag Challenge

OME Reading Brag Tag Challenge

 

Let's get reading OME...

 

We spent some time chatting with adults and children alike about what hooked them into reading and almost every one of them said it was a particular series, character, genre or author that peaked their interest.  Therefore, we created the OME Brag Tag Reading Challenge.  Students choose a book series that they would love to read and then get a bookmark from Library.  After they read each book in the series, students then complete a graphic organizer to share what they have learned and loved about the book and turn it into their teacher.  Students then check out the next book in the series.  When they finish all the books on the bookmark, they turn it in at the office. Mrs. Discher will come around once a week with the Reading Brag Tag cart to award the students with their grade level super cool Converse keychain and a new brag tag or two for their efforts.  The goal is to have students fall in love with characters, settings, genres and authors, as well as allow their imaginations to take them on amazing adventures!  (Currently we have students who are completing 2-3 series a month and we are struggling to keep up with them, which is great and we are up to the challenge)  Students proudly display their keychains on their backpacks with all the brag tags that they collect.  We hope students will "brag" about the books they are reading to share their excitement and encourage others to do the same.  The journey of a lifetime could start with the turning of a page...Happy Reading OME!
