The SOAR and ROAR challenges kicked off this week for GMU students in Grades 1 and 2!
Sit Often And Read (SOAR) challenges first-graders to read 100 books, using Epic books for kids. Each student will receive prizes and a feather for every 10 books read. Teacher Elisa Heggenstaller will take a pie in the face from first-graders who hit 100 books.
Read Often And Review (ROAR) challenges second-graders to read books and then write reviews using a standard template. Students will receive a dinosaur-egg prize and add a tooth to our currently Toothless T-Rex each time they complete five book reviews. Those who write 25 book reviews will have the opportunity to slime Mrs. Heggenstaller or her dino helper, Lauren Weidman.
We can’t wait for the fun to start, so keep reading, Raiders!
