READING INCENTIVE

Monday April 12th thru Friday April 30th.

The Underpants Challenge

The students of WIS are challenged to read 500 LIBRARY books!

If the students accomplish this incredible task, Captain Underpants, aka Mr. Klata will appear in full garb (underpants and all) during lunch Friday April 30th. There will be games and prizes during his appearance.

During the 3 weeks of the challenge, teachers will be asked to play short videos on Tuesdays and hold fun activities on Thursdays (ex. drawing, crossword type puzzles, story contests, …). These activities are designed to be less than 10 minutes in length.

When a student completes a book they will fill out an Underpants   Card with information about the book, sign the card and turn it in to the Underpants box in the library. Each student must turn in his/her own card in person (we want kids coming to the library).

Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 2 student’s (per grade level) names will be drawn from the Underpants box. These student’s will get to spend 25 minutes in the WIS Library Arcade!

If the kids participate and meet the challenge, we will schedule the Captain Underpants Epic Movie to be shown in the multi-purpose room after testing.

In order for this to be successful, teachers MUST send their kids to the library media center to check-out!

The only catch: ALL BOOKS READ MUST BE FROM THE WIS LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER. REGULAR LIBRARY BOOKS AND E-BOOKS ARE PERMITTED.

Teachers may choose to read a book aloud to their class. In this case all students will complete an Underpants card on the same book.
