Read n Quiz

Read n Quiz is up and running for all 2nd through 5th graders!

Read n Quiz is a great incentive reading program where students take comprehension tests on books they have read. There are different amounts of points earned depending upon the length and difficulty of each book read. The program keeps track of their scores and assigns points according to their accuracy in answering the questions. Therefore, the tests should be taken independently without help from others or the book.
We will be holding a “store” called the Bookworm Bazaar at the end of each trimester where the students can “spend” the points they have earned. The district funds accounts for all 2nd through 5th grade classes. Many of the titles available are not ”good fit books” for the reading levels of K-1st but we would love our little leopards to have an opportunity to have points to spend as well. I will be working with the K-1 teachers to find appropriate ways for their students to earn points such as turning in their 20/20 reading calendars. We’ll let you know more details about that shortly.
The students have access to Read n Quiz here at school but they can also access it from home! Just go to the Lacamas website and under Student Sites go to Library. Once you click there, you will see a link to Read n Quiz. The username is the first letter of their first name and the first 4 letters of their last name(so mine would be llouc). The password is their room #.
Have fun! Keep reading! And remember….Readers are Leaders!
