Millionaire’s know EVERY WORD COUNTS

If you have ever dreamed of being a millionaire, now is your chance.  All students will 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.  Check out the history of winners featured on past blog posts.

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. BOOK BLOGS:  For kids who don’t like to take Reading Counts Quizzes, you can get credit for your words by completing a Reading Counts Book Blog form.  By completing this, you get credit for all the words you read without taking the quiz.  Perfect for kids who pick books that don’t have quizzes, are tired of quizzes or might be in grades K and 1 — too young for Reading Counts but early readers who want to start counting their words.
  3. MILLION WORD CLUB BOOK LIST:  If you want to track ALL the books you read at home, on vacation and over the summer and you don’t want to bother with quizzes or book blogs, you have the option of keeping a Million word club form.  Print off the form and keep it handy so that you can put down all the information.  When it is filled out, turn it into  Mrs. VandenBerg (Librarian), our school librarian.

Links to help you calculate words in books are found on the right under READING COUNTs.  Quick links can be found here:  Ren Learningand   Scholastic e-Catalog.

So, while you are stuck inside on these cold winter snow days, READ READ READ…and increase your chances of becoming a Georgetown millionaire.
