Reader’s Workshop Challenge + Genre Review

Upon our return, we embarked on the Tower of Books Challenge, a
reading challenge for your child!

Here’s how it works:
Your child’s goal is to read all of the books from a variety of genre categories. They will check off one of the boxes each time a book is read. After checking off a box, it’s time for him/her to add to… their Tower of Books! In this challenge, your child will read 20 “just right” books between now and the end of the year and they will get to try some different types of books they may not have read before, and all the while have fun keeping track of their reading! Happy stacking!
