  • 40 Book Challenge

    Fourth grade students at Ralya Elementary School are participating in the 40 Book Challenge, an activity designed to motivate them to read books from a variety of genres. Students are challenged to read 40 books by the end of the year (about one book a week) and must choose books from 15 different reading genres. Students earn prizes for every book they complete and will earn a certificate at the end of the year showing what they accomplished! A "book tasting" event at the beginning of the year exposes students to book genres that they might not have tried out on their own, and gives students the opportunity to add a few book ideas to their "must read" list.
