Miss Barnes’ Monthly Reading Challenges

I hope all of our Stingrays will participate each month!

Each month I will announce a reading challenge for all of our stingrays in the Stingray Splash. 

When the monthly challenge is met, students will write their name and room number on a ticket and place it in a jar in the office. During Monday morning school wide openings, I will draw tickets for some fun prizes such as books, a special read aloud with Ms. Natale in the library, a stingray sticker for their water bottle, a fun pencil and more.

Following the first Monday Morning Opening of the month, all students who met the Monthly Challenge will gather for a group photo that will be part of the rotating photos in the electronic photo frame in the office hallway and on Instagram.

Have fun with the monthly challenges and model good reading habits for your child…all family members can take on the monthly reading  challenges!

Stingrays are Readers!
