Kraxberger launches Million Page Challenge
Teachers at Kraxberger Middle School have challenged sixth, seventh, and eighth graders to see which class can be the first to read a million pages by the end of the school year. The goal is 50 pages per student per day, with Kraxberger staff joining in to help each grade level.
“Research shows us that young readers have better outcomes in school, but the real reason teachers wanted to do this is that we know the power of a good story,” said seventh grade language arts teacher Sarah Lennox. “We always want our students to be able to explore the world through a passion for reading, but now it feels especially important when so much of our lives are spent in our homes. The escape and entertainment that comes from reading is just as valuable as the academic practice students are getting.”
