KBES kicked off our schoolwide read on Friday, October 11th! All students were given a copy of Charlotte's Web to keep. We read chapter 1 together as a whole school. Inside the book was a letter for parents explaining the program and a bookmark with the reading schedule. This book was more difficult than last year's schoolwide read book, so more students may have needed the book read to them. There are audio recordings of each chapter posted below on the school website for students who would like to follow along with the text. Students can count all 22 chapters of Charlotte's Web on their 100 Book Challenge if they read Charlotte's Web!
Optional Challenge Questions were posted on Schoology each week and prizes given to the winners drawn.
