Reading can be rewarding to a child who makes it a daily habit. The DPES Library has found many business and organizations that know the benefits of a child who reads, and want to reward them for it. Therefore, each month the library will make a reading log available for you and your child to fill out. At the end of the month, submit or return the reading log to me, and I will turn them in to these businesses and organizations that reward readers.
This month we are turning in our totals to see which students earned their Six Flags and Schlitterbahn tickets. We will also be awarding readers in February with a free pizza from Pizza Hut. Don't forget to also have your child participate in our "Tomball Reads One Book" program by reading the book The One and Only Ivan. That log can count towards reading minutes too if you prefer writing your minutes read on that calendar versus the monthly Reading Log.
November, December, & January:
During these months, students can work on earning a free ticket to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and/or a free ticket to Schlitterbahn Galveston. Between the months of November and January, if your child reads a total of 360 minutes, they will earn a Six Flags ticket. If they read a total of 600 minutes, they will also earn a Schlitterbahn ticket. All students who turn in a reading log the months of November, December, and January will also earn a free pizza form Pizza Hut. The reading logs for each month are listed below.
Your child's first library reading log went home the beginning of the month in their Wednesday folder (it was an orange handout). This month, the students will be awarded a free pizza from Pizza Hut's Book It program. All student will also be entered into a contest for our top readers of each grade and will be recognized at our end of year reading rally. Here are the 2 ways you and your child can fill out their logs (a combination of them can be used too):
- Fill out the handout (you can download it below or ask me for a copy) and return it at the end of the month.
- Complete the Google form after each reading time. The Google form can be found at: https://goo.gl/Wbvtu9 (this link will change each month). Once you hit “Submit,” each entry is automatically sent to me.
