The 25 Book Challenge

The 25 (At Least) Book Challenge

Welcome to the 25 book challenge, yes, you are expected to read at least 25 books in 7th grade. If you already know you will read at least 25 books, I would like you to set a higher goal than that, we will discuss together.  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 1/4 of a 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 if you want)
  • 15 of the books must be actual chapter books
  • This is meant to push you as a reader, if 25 is too little of a goal for you, please set a higher goal. My goal will be 80 books.

How do you record it:
There are many ways to record your 25 books, here are a few examples:
  • On your "My Reading List" - this would be the easiest place to do it
  • Book buddy discussion
  • Blog a review on Kidblog of each book.
  • Share your best reviews on Mrs. Ripp Reads blog
  • Film a review.
  • Stick the cover of your finished books up in your locker
  • Recommend the book to a friend and have them write whether they would like to read it.
  • Skype book recommendation call
  • Your idea?
