Why Reading Counts works

  1. Kids read what they like.
  2. Readers get instant feedback.
  3. Students can earn points based on the length and complexity of each book they read, helping to establish concrete goals.
  4. Students are awarded incentives such as Eagle Bucks, pencils, bookmarks, and raffle tickets based on the number of points earned.  Points are counted and awards distributed every week.  A raffle is held each week
  5. At the end of each trimester the classroom that read the most quiz books receives a certificate (primary/intermediate).
  6. Students receive a certificate and have their names posted in the cafeteria if they have earned at least 20 points that trimester.
