READING COUNTS

At Morgan Township Elementary we supplement our reading program with Scholastic Reading Counts!.

  • Reading Counts! allows students to read a book, take an online quiz in their classroom or library, and accumulate points when a passing grade is earned.  
  • Students must get at least 7 out of 10 questions correct to earn Reading Counts! points and/or raffle tickets.
  •  RAFFLE INFO: Students fill out a Reading Counts! slip after they pass a quiz.  These slips are put in a raffle. Every Friday (during lunch) Mrs. Niebel draws a name from the Reading Counts! bucket. Students earn prizes if their name is called.  
  • POINTS AND INCENTIVES: Reading Counts! reports are run once a week. PTO provides incentives for accumulated Reading Counts! points. Students may earn the following rewards from PTO:

25 pts - Bookmark

50 pts - Giant Popsicle

75 pts - Extra Recess with a Friend

100 pts - Donut Party

150 pts - Game Party

200 pts - Ice Cream Sundae Party

300 pts - PTO brings lunch in for students to eat with Mrs. Niebel

 

  • END OF THE YEAR TRIPS: Students that earn the required grade level points three out of four grading periods will participate in end of the year trips sponsored by the PTO.
