“Costello Kids are Cardinal Readers!”
March is Reading Month 2016
Are you ready for March is Reading Month? We have some fun things planned to celebrate our enthusiasm for reading! Attached you will find all the information you will need to participate in this year’s events.
“Cardinal Readers” Calendar: Here you will find one idea for every day in March. Although most of these activities will happen at home, some events do take place at school. You do not have to do every idea listed, but we would like to see your child experience something new with reading as often as possible. Please post the attached calendar in a place where you and your child will read it daily! If your child completes 20 activities they will be entered in a drawing to win a $5 gift certificate (2 winners: 1 student from K-2 and 1 student from 3-5)
“Cardinal Readers” Reading Log: See attached sheet with an explanation of how the weekly Reading Log will work. Please keep these in a safe place so your child can submit a “log” on Monday for a chance at a prize. Cut off the week’s slip and return to school on Monday of each week. We will have four drawings for prizes throughout the month with at least one child from each grade level winning a prize each week. Any logs turned in after 12:45 Monday will be entered into the next week’s drawing.
Camp Read S’more Day: Our 11th annual “Camp Read S’more” will be on Tuesday, March 29. All students will gather in the media center with their buddy classes to read in tents and share yummy s’mores around our “campfire”.
Dress Up Days: We will have fun dress up days throughout the month. Check the attached calendar for these special days.
