Home Reading Challenge #1 – Grades 3-6

PDF, Word | 1 page|Grades: 3 - 6

A set of reading activities that parents can use to educate children remotely or that teachers can send to students working at home when schools are closed.

What better time to get your students reading than during school closures when they are stuck at home?! So, we have decided to start a Home Reading Challenge!

Here’s how it works – students read one book a day and complete an activity from the Home Reading Challenge grid. The books they choose are up to them! They can be self-read or read aloud to them.

Storyline Online is a great website that has a huge number of children’s storybooks being read by famous people. That might be a fun place for students to start!

During school closures, or if children need to be educated from home or homeschooled, teachers can print off this reading grid of activities and send home with students, download it digitally via a link, email it to parents and guardians, or upload it on any digital learning platform as an at-home learning experience that allows students to work with minimal preparation and supervision.

Parents and guardians should be able to understand these tasks and activities and to set them in a homeschooling or at-home learning environment, without requiring materials or resources found in a classroom. The activities in the grid can be completed on a tablet/iPad or completed with a pen or pencil in a journal.

How to Use This Download to Teach Students Working Remotely

This activity grid can be used as a choice board – allowing students to choose one activity to complete each day after reading a picture book – or any other way you may see fit.  We have also made the activity grid available in an editable Word version so that you can adjust the activities to suit your needs while teaching children remotely or using Google Classroom.
