Read-a-Thon | Starts 1/8 to 2/4
1/7/2018 3:58 pm
This year's Read-a-Thon which will run from January 8th through February 4th is being run through Whooo’s Reading, a web-based platform. Whooo’s Reading promotes skills that students actually need in life: independent thinking and communication. Students think independently with open-ended quiz questions for any book… instead of filling in A, B, C, or D.
It also provides a fun way for children to log the minutes they read, provides parents with a convenient way to collect sponsorship pledges, and provides teachers with a route to incorporate the Read-a-Thon into class activities if they wish. How can you participate?Read More
