Idita-Read with my 1st graders
Old 03-02-2008, 03:07 PM
 

The students read at home out loud to an adult and write down how many minutes they read each night in their special Idita-Read folders. Each minute read equals 4 miles along the trail! I have the checkpoints out in the hall by our room and each day they move their dogsled markers along, checkpoint by checkpoint, on their way to Nome. They are to beat the Red Lantern Musher into Nome from the real race. It is 268 minutes of reading from Anchorage to Nome. They are so excited about it! They are planning how many minutes they will read each night with their friends instead of what tv program they want to watch. Several are past the half-way point (we started last week), so they might just get to Nome and turn around and try to make it back to Anchorage!
