EVERY WORD COUNTS at GEORGETOWN!

If you have ever dreamed of being a millionaire, now is your chance.  All students have the opportunity to become a member of this club if they succeed in reading for 1,000,000 words this school year.  Mrs. VandenBerg, our librarian, keeps the tally of your books read from year to year.  The word count keep growing as long as you keep turning in your book lists, completing book blogs and/or completing reading counts quizzes. We celebrate the millionaires at the end of each school year.  Find out about past millionaires by searching our blog with the key word ‘ millionaires ‘.

Million Words FrontAs a member of the MILLION WORDs club, each member will have their name on the MILLIONAIRE’s BOARD (display case in our rotunda) and receive a very cool, totally awesome t-shirt.  How do you log your words?  It’s as easy as this:

  1. READING COUNTS QUIZZES: Each time you complete a  Reading Counts quiz, you get credit for all those words.  Mrs. Vandenberg keeps track of the word count for you.
  2. MILLION WORD CLUB BOOK LIST:  If you don’t like READING COUNTS QUIZZES, but you LOVE to read, you can still work on becoming a MILLIONAIRE.  Keep track of ALL the books you read at home (and on vacation) print this form and write down your books:  Million Word Club History – PDF.   EVEN EASIER:  Click on  this document (viewed by opening your gmail account).  Type in this form and it saves you from printing the form — it can be shared with Mrs. VandenBerg!  (jvandenb@hpseagles.net)
