The Basics

  1. Find Sponsors
    Ask family, grandparents, and family friends to sponsor your reading by the minute or just a dollar amount. Use the sponsor form provided.
  2. Read & Log Your Minutes
    From Monday, Nov. 28th – Friday, Dec. 9th record every minute you read outside of school on the “Your Minutes” form. Your teacher has more forms. Being read to by other people and homework reading both count. Magazines, comics, and newspapers count. Picture books count for Kindergarteners.
  3. Daily Raffle
    When you read, fill out a “I Read Yesterday” Raffle Ticket and add it to the Raffle box before morning circle.  Prizes awarded every morning!
  4. Turn in your Forms
    When the Read-a-thon ends, turn in all your “Sponsors” form and “Your Minutes” forms to your classroom teacher. Remember to put your name on them and have parent signatures or initials where needed.
  5. Collect Donations
    After the event, parents collect and turn in your child’s sponsorship donations to the School Office before the deadline.
