In the past, I have run a Get Caught Reading Campaign to get students motivated and excited to read over the summer. This year, I decided to get them excited about our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair (and to keep them excited about reading!). Coincidentally, the Get Caught Reading starts the same day as Red Ribbon Week. I enjoyed working with our Assistant Principal Elizabeth Ashton to have our themes coincide.
Each time a student is caught reading, they get ticketed. The tickets are collected, and at the end of the three weeks, winners will be drawn at random to win a book available at the book fair. In addition to the get caught reading program, we also have announcements in the morning over the PA system about reading. Each day for 12 days leading up to our fair, students will read a book review from a book featured at the fair.
