Red pens, notebooks and stickers are all important items in your toolbox, but do you have anything in there for your next book-a-thon? You don’t need much, but these items will make the book-a-thon successful for you and your students.
Prizes: Invest in a few small prizes that will serve as motivation for your students to read as much as possible. Keep movie tickets, gift cards and medals in your coordinator toolbox to reward the top readers. Use ReadaFun’s Incentives page to create custom goals for these prizes.
More Books: You may be surprised at how quickly your students get through their books and move on to new ones. Plan regular trips to the library, if you don’t already, or organize a book swap at the beginning of the book-a-thon for your students to exchange their favorite reads.
Tracking Tools: ReadaFun’s platform will help you keep track of each student’s progress throughout the book-a-thon.
