Scholastic Reading Counts

Reading Counts  

Reading Counts is a program that all of our 3nd-5th grade students are encouraged to participate in.  The 3rd-5th grade students have been hard at work taking quizzes!  The program runs from September to May.  In May, we have a celebration for the students that reached their goal.

STUDENT GOALS
3RD GRADE - 60 POINTS
4TH GRADE - 75 POINTS
5TH GRADE - 100 POINTS

    The way the RC program works is that a student reads a book in their reading level, takes a quiz about the book on a computer.  They can only take quizzes on computers or iPads at school.  If the student answers at least 8/10 questions correct (80%), they earn points.  Students are encouraged to check out at least one Reading Counts book each week.
   It is recommended that a student take the quiz within 24 hours of completion of the book, when possible. If a child gets less than 8 correct, they may retake the quiz after 24 hours.
    If you would like to find out if the books your child has at hame have a RC quiz for them or not, you can go to this website:

    If your child checks out books from the public library, they can use this same web link to find out if those books have RC quizzes or not.

    Please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Fellows for any questions you may have regarding Reading Counts.
