How it works
The goal of the Reading Olympics is to increase students' reading for enjoyment and increase reading skills. Students in grades 4-6 collaborate with their teammates to read forty to fifty books that have been selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialists and classroom teachers. Faculty and staff members serve as group leaders for this fun activity!
You will be assigned a minimum of six (6) books to read for your team and be the “expert” on your team for those books. You are encouraged to also read as many of the other books on the list as you can to help your team. You will be reading a few of the novels in class.
Please do not sign up for Reading Olympics unless you are committed to reading the books, and attending as many practices as possible, otherwise you will be ineligible to attend the competition. If you have a sports practice on one of the dates below, please tell Ms. Hymel and she will speak with Mr. Dickman to let him know you will be late for practice.
As stated above, students are given a minimum of six (6) books from the Reading Olympics Book List to read for the WMA team.
Everyone is invited to the first meeting where they will be assigned a book to read.
At the second meeting, they will answer questions about the first assigned book. Students should reference the oral report guidelines before presenting on their chosen book. They will then be assigned a second book to read.
At the third meeting, they will again answer questions on the second assigned book. If both books were read and questions sufficiently answer about the book, the student will be invited to join Reading Olympics and registration will be opened.
As information is received from MCIU on competition dates and other important information it will be posted.
