Challenge students to read 100 books by the end of school. Record title and author of each book on a paper "chain" link and return the complete chain for a photo op and to be gushed over for completing such a feat :o)
Reading chains: Every time a student finishes a book, they can write their name, title and author of the book on a strip and attach it to their class chain. Perhaps the class with the longest chain at the end of the year could get some type of reward.
