Read with Medina Elementary Reading Club this school year! This year we will focus on the amount of time each student reads, use reading logs, and have monthly prizes.

Goals

Join our reading challenge! Our new goal is to have Medina students read 500,000 minutes by the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

 


Reading logs

Every time a student reads, they are asked to record their reading minutes on Reading Logs and get a parental initial. Students are encouraged to engage in a wide variety of reading materials, including e-books, books, magazines, audiobooks, comics and more. Parents reading to their children - picture or chapter books - also counts! 

 

Reading Logs can be submitted weekly on Mondays for online forms or by the end of the month (March 31st) for the printed forms.  

 

 

There are two ways to submit Reading Logs:

Print and Email

New! Print Reading Logs (Word, PDF). Once the Reading Log is filled up email it to  reading@medinapta.org or drop it off at the Medina PTA bin! You can fill in as many logs as you like throughout the month. The deadline is April 30th, 2021

 

Online Form

A new Reading Log online form for the current week will be available for each student on your family's Medina PTA Account page every Monday. You can continue to submit your reading log every Monday. 

 


Book Swap 

Do you have children’s books lying around your house you don’t need anymore? Do you want to pass on your books to other Medina students?

  2. Choose a sign up time to come choose books to take home (sign up will be available through Sign Up Genius March 7th to March 12th on a first come first serve basis).
  3. Come to the BOOK SWAP event on Saturday March 13th at Medina Elementary in the undercover area during your chosen time from 1-4pm to pick out your books.
  4. Fill in the Reading Logs and submit them at the end of March for a small prize.

 

We are accepting the following books: picture books, chapter books, comic books, graphic novels, magazines as well as non-fiction books on subjects appropriate for elementary aged students. Books should be suitable for readers in grades KG-5. Readable condition only.
