40 Book Challenge

The 40 Book Challenge

Welcome to the 40 book challenge, yes, you are expected to read 40 books in 5th grade.  However, there is a way to do this:
  • Books with more than 300 pages count as 2 books, books with more than 500 pages count as 3 books.  More than 800 - see Mrs. Ripp
  • Graphic novels count as ½ book.
  • Picture books count as 1/10 of a book - so 10 picture books are needed to count as 1 book.
  • Magazines/Comics - check with Mrs. Ripp for fraction value
  • You pick the books you want to read.
  • You have until the end of the year
  • You are only competing against yourself as a reader and Mrs. Ripp
    15 of the books must be actual chapter books

How do you record it:
There are many ways to record your 40 books, here are a few examples:

  • Book buddy discussion
  • On your reading log
  • Blog a review on Kidblog of each book.
  • Share your best reviews on Mrs. Ripp Reads blog
  • Film a review.
  • Keep a book log listing all of the books and your opinions on it.
  • Stick the cover of your finished books up in your cubby.
  • Recommend the book to a friend and have them write whether they would like to read it.
  • Use your Biblinasium account to keep track.
  • Skype book recommendation call
  • Your idea?
