40 Book Challenge!

This year, each student will participate in the 40 Book Challenge!  To complete it, they will complete a book about every 8-10 days!  So, students should be reading at least 20 minutes per day at home.  We will also have time to read in school!

Students should try to cover the following genre:

Poetry (2)          Realistic fiction (5)          Historical fiction (2)          Fantasy (2)

Mystery (2)          Informational (2)          Biography/autobiography (2)

Chapter-book choice (23+)

If your child forgets his/her Story Town textbook or Practice workbook at home, it is now available online!  To access the e-books, please follow these steps:

2.  Enter Illinois, New Lenox School District 122, and Caroline Bentley school in the drop-down menus.
3.  Enter your child's username and password.  
        *Each username is 122 followed by the child's full legal name.  For example: "122jenniferruhl"  
        *The password is nlsd followed by student ID, which the kids use to log-in to the computers here at school.  For example: "nlsd12345"
        *This information can also be found in each child's assignment notebook!
4.  Log-in.
