Timber Trail book worms take the 40-book challenge
The Timber Trail Elementary librarian offered students a 40-book reading challenge during this past school year. The goal was to read 40 books from various genres ranging from fiction and fantasy to history. Books had to meet the genre requirements but could be read in any order and accomplished via listening to audio books or through traditional reading.
When the students finished reading each book, they tracked progress individually and were asked to check in periodically with their progress and when the final 40th book was read. This personal challenge provided the students with great opportunity to embrace different genres of books.
