The 25 (At Least) Book Challenge

Welcome to the 25 book challenge!  In 7th grade you are expected to read at least 25 books.  If you already know you will read at least 25 books, I would like you to set a higher goal than that which we will do in class.  

How are books counted:
  • 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 depending in the book.
  • Picture books count as 1/10 of a book - so 10 picture books are needed to count as 1 book.

Further details:
  • 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 85 books.

How do you record it:
There are many ways to record your 25 books, here are a few examples:
  • You can use Goodreads
  • You can use Padlet
  • You can use a Google Doc
  • You can come up with your own idea
  • Or you can use the in-class all year reader's’ notebook (provided)
