Ready, Set . . . Read!
One of KHS's goals is that all students will show positive reading growth (comprehension and vocabulary) by the end of this school year. So, to help you on your learning and reading journey, KHS is sponsoring a reading raffle. We will be taking 100 students to see the movie, The Hobbit - The Battle of Five Armies.
How Do You "Get" a Raffle Ticket?
Well, earning a raffle ticket takes 3 steps:
How do you prove you've read the book? Choose one of the following:
Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: Each student writes a review of the book he or she just finished reading -- in the style of a movie review. The student concludes by awarding a thumbs up or thumbs down on the book. (Reviews must be at least one page typed, double spaced with 12 pt font)
Be an Artist: Create your own Book Cover/Jacket for the Book that is creative, colorful and includes title, author and a short synopsis (plot) of the book.
Book Talk. Make an appointment with Mrs. Ornes, your librarian, to sit down and discuss the book for a few minutes.
Ten Facts. Each student creates a "Ten Facts About [book title]" sheet that lists ten facts he or she learned from reading the book. The facts, written in complete sentences, must include details the student didn't know before reading the book.
Create a comic strip of an important or favorite part of the book.
Summarize: Write a one page summary of the book. Summaries must be at least one page typed, double spaced with 12 pt font.)
Come up with your own idea and talk it over with Mrs. Ornes
Start Reading Now; Contest Ends December 11th!
If a student earns 10 or more raffle tickets, he or she automatically qualifies to go to the movies. Questions? Stop by the library and ask Mrs. Ornes or email her at email@example.com
