Teen Read Week culminated on Friday, October 14, with the conclusion of the ILC's fall reading challenge, Eagles Read: Pageapalooza, as well as a Drop Everything and Read and a spray paint t-shirt Do Something Cool.
Pageapalooza was a six-week team or individual reading challenge that began in early September. The nearly 100 students and staff members who registered read as many pages as possible for fun for a chance to win a Kindle Fire.
Team Sofishticated, consisting of freshmen Ashley Alm, Isabella Frank, Alexandra Lynch, and Nick Slobodian, came in first place, reading a total of 43,734 pages. Each received a Kindle Fire.
Usually, Barb and I use the blog forum to share new ideas about technology integration, reading promotions, and research tips. Yet, sometimes information from last year is so good that it is worth re-posting with updated information.
We know that teachers are looking for ways to include more reading activities into their curriculum. What better way to look for articles than to use the state database trial that’s going on now.
The ILC blog keeps Lakes students and staff up to date with news and events related to reading, research, technology, and more.
