#100ReasonstoRead: Classroom Edition

This is the first post in a series where teachers tell us how they celebrate reading in their classrooms. Today’s post is written by Ms. Madarang, a second grade teacher from Pennsylvania.


We love to read—as a class, on our own, with a buddy, to the class! We read
books written by famous authors, by classmates, and by ourselves! We read to learn about new people, faraway places, and interesting ideas. We read about crazy characters, wild adventures, funny stories, and amazing facts! We especially love to read and log in our minutes of reading at home.
For every 100 minutes of reading at home, a student chooses a seasonal symbol (see the photo below) and puts his or her name on it. We are trying to go all the way around the room! We have made it about halfway. When we reach our goal, we are going to have a reading celebration! The person who reads the most will get to choose a book from my special supply.
Here are our 100 minutes of reading decorations!





Do you track reading minutes at home or in the classroom? Let us know using the hashtag #100ReasonstoRead!
