Winter Literacy Challenge


Winter Literacy Challenge - (Download a PDF of this form)

Students have an opportunity to complete a literacy challenge this month.  This is not a required assignment, merely a choice whether a student wants to participate.  Students that complete at least 8 of the 10 challenges and turn this completed paper into Mrs. Hawks no later than Friday February 28th, will earn a piece of candy.  These students will also get their name turned into a drawing for a free book.  These challenges are meant to be completed at home, not at school.  Parents/guardians are welcome to help their students with the challenges.  Parents/guardians need to sign their initials next to each challenge where it says “PI”. Shared reading is a fantastic way to spend time together. If students are struggling to find a particular book or article, I am happy to help them with that!
