‘Clash of the Classrooms’ reading challenge launched

Chatham-Kent and Lambton County elementary and secondary school classes are invited to participate in the ‘Clash of the Classrooms’ Reading Challenge hosted in partnership with Chatham-Kent Public Library (CKPL) and Lambton County Library.

Through this program CKPL and Lambton County Library hope to strengthen students’ love of reading.

Online registration for ‘Clash of the Classrooms’ opened Monday, January 9.

Teachers can sign their classes up for the challenge through Beanstack.

Beanstack is a web-based reading tracking service that enables individuals and groups to easily track their reading progress.

From February 6 to March 10 teachers can use Beanstack to report their classes’ reading progress.

Classes will earn badges for reaching reading milestones and completing activities.

Any time that students spend reading in and outside of class during the challenge can be added to class reading totals.

Two elementary classes and one high school class, from each municipality, will win a pizza party for the most minutes read.

As well, one elementary school, one high school and one homeschool group, from each municipality, will win a cash prize for most collective minutes read.

Sign-up and get reading.

CKPL would like to extend a special thank you to the Rotary Club of Chatham for sponsoring the Chatham-Kent portion of ‘Class of the Classrooms’.
