• GCISD Reads

    The GCISD Reads initiative is designed to build a love of reading in students by encouraging them to read a large quantity and a wide variety of books. 
    Who:  GCISD students, staff, and parents are all invited to participate.
    What:  Students have several challenge options to choose from including:
    • 1,500 pages (K-2)
    • 2,500 pages (3-5)
    • 100 Book Challenge (K-2)
    • 25 Book Challenge (3-5) *books should be at least 100 pages
    • Genre Challenge
    Audiobooks count toward the challenges for students who choose to read this way and for those in need of accommodations. Ebooks can be found through MackinVia (use your GCISD username and password) or the Epic app on ipads.
    When:  Between June 1, 2017 and May 1, 2018
    Where:  Reading can take place in or outside of school using paper or electronic materials.
     Why: Students who read more do better in school, have wider vocabularies, and have a lifelong habit enabling them to continue learning beyond their K-12 education.
    How:  Students will keep track of their reading in a log that notes the title, number of pages, genre, and date completed. See the list below for possible recording logs. Once students have completed a challenge, their logs should be turned in to their classroom teacher or the librarian. The librarian will record the completed challenges on a Google form to ensure they receive a certificate at the end of the school year.
