Reading Rodeo

YEE HAH!  We are excited about our “Reading Rodeo” program! It is important that you read with your child every day. At first, you may be reading TO your child. Later in the year, your child should begin reading TO YOU each night. The record will show all the extra reading time that you and your child are doing at home. As students achieve milestones, they are recognized on the Reading Rodeo Round-Up bulletin board at the front entrance of the school. Throughout the year, your child will be rewarded for each 100 books read. List the books read each night and return the folder to school each day.  Please take care of this record all year.

100 Books Read A colt with the student’s name on the saddle is put in the corral on the Reading Rodeo board.  Student receives a “100” book charm and certificate.
200 Books Read A rider with the student’s photo is placed on the colt.  Student receives another “100” book charm and certificate.
300 Books Read A lasso is added to the student’s rider.  Student receives another “100” book charm and certificate.
400 Books Read A sheriff’s star is added to the student’s rider and the student receives a sheriff’s badge to wear.  The student also receives another “100” book charm and certificate.
500 Books Read The student’s colt and rider is moved out of the corral and into the green pasture.  Student receives another “100” book charm and certificate and can now check out two books from the library for the remainder of the year.
600 and Over The student will receive a “100” book charm and certificate for every 100 books read over 500.

Things to Remember…

      • You and your child should read together.  Your child needs your help to become a better reader.
      • Ask your child questions about the stories that you read.  This helps children understand what they are reading.
      • The parent / guardian must record all information and initial.  When reading a chapter book, one chapter counts as one book.
      • Record books only once.  But have fun reading them many times.
      • Return the Reading Rodeo folder to school every day.  Your child will need the folder to check out books from the library.
