Futuraskolan International Rådan has a unique reading challenge this year and everyone is really excited!
This year, the students in grades 4, 5 and 6 will participate in the I Love Reading to the Moon and Back challenge. The students will count each page they read as one kilometre. Their teachers will keep track of the weekly totals and after 5000 pages/kilometres, the Swedish teacher will add another book to the display. The books will form a stepladder the reaches all the up to the moon.
The students have to read a selection of 11 different genres. A different type of assignment is required for each book. The students can present their projects to any of the language teachers in the school. Students who take mother tongue lessons are encouraged to read a book in their native language and present to their home language teachers.
Students started this challenge on August 26. On September 10, the students earned their first book with a total of 5500 pages read in 16 days! WOW!!
Only six days later, on September 16, the students earned their second book with another 5000 pages. INCREDIBLE!
Well done, Rådan students!
