month, Millridge is participating in a Read-a-Thon. Your child will be
through pledges from family and friends, will be earning money for
Millridge based on how much they read. Everything is tracked online,
which makes inviting sponsors and logging minutes read extremely simple!
Instead of doing a reading log this month, I would like students to log their reading minutes on app.whooosreading.org. There will also be no RRJ’s this
month. Whooose Reading has questions about your child’s book that I would like them to answer.
child should have brought home a sheet with their login in and password
information. If you have not gotten it, I can send you their
information. If you do not
have or have limited access to the internet, please let me know and we
can work out a way for your child to log their reading minutes.
The basics of the Read-a-Thon:
Students Read Books: Students
read whatever they're interested in during the Read-A-Thon:
Biographies, picture books, fairy tales, etc. Students who are not able
to read on their own can count time when another person reads to them.
Log Activity Online: Students
keep track of everything they read during the fundraiser
on their secure and fun online reading profile –
app.whooosreading.org/login. This site works best if you use Google
Chrome or Mozilla Firefox or Safari. Students will not only be able to
log their time but complete activities about books they read and also
create their own “Owlvitar”, which can even win them prizes.
