FREE Reading Literature Challenge for Students

Hey teachers,
As a way to thank you for all of your support, I designed this free reading literature challenge for students. I hope you find them as engaging as many other students have! These reading challenge task cards are a unique way to inspire students to read something NEW. For example, one of the task cards asks students to read a novel that was written at least 100 years before they were born! Most students wouldn’t think to seek out a book so “ancient”.

Q: How should I display these task cards in my classroom?
A: I would suggest displaying these task cards near your classroom library. They can serve as a go-to point for students who are looking for their next literary adventure!

Q: How should I grade these task cards?
A: Personally, I wouldn’t grade the task cards. Instead, try using them as more of a literary guide or suggestion for students. However, if you wish to grade them, you can use a simple rubric or offer extra credit to students who complete them in entirety.


Thanks for being amazing! You’re doing a great job this year.
