Book Challenge

I would like to implement the book challenge from The Book Whisperer. For those of you that have already done this, did you require 40 books or lower the requirement to 30? I am wondering if 40 is a bit high or do they rise to the challenge? Thanks, any input is greatly appreciated!!

Go down a few threads, and there is one called "40 Book Challenge." There is some discussion there. Also there is a group in PT for the Book Whisper, you might want to check that out.

This is my first year trying the challenge, so I am right there with you . . .(wondering)

I left my challenge at 40 books and most of my students met the challenge. We didn't look at it as a failure for those that didn't complete the 40 books, but as a "Look at how many books you did read!" I was pleased with the results and my students enjoyed reading!

I taught 4th grade last year and did a 40 book challenge. My higher readers met their challenge, but my lower readers struggled and felt too overwhelmed. This year I have moved up to 5th grade for each semester going to give my students a 20-book challenge.

I've decided to try this out in my class this year. I did the 40 book challenge - keep your fingers crossed.
