Readers Are Leaders is a reading challenge designed for fourth graders. Historically, entire classes have participated in the challenge and teachers have selected a winner from each school. However, due to safety concerns and the demands surrounding COVID, we are opening the reading challenge to any fourth grader who wants to participate, even if their class/school opts not to participate.
This year, the challenge asks fourth graders to read 6 books at their reading level in 5 weeks.
For book suggestions, you may use the Sora application on all DOE issued devices. Sora is free to all students. You may access free selections on Sora by visiting www.overdrive.com/apps/sora/
For Sora users and those with a DOE sign-in, here is a link to the Readers Are Leaders collection: https://soraapp.com/library/nycschools/curated-1182055/page-1
The challenge will begin on March 8 and conclude on April 9, 2021.
All book report submissions are due by April 12, 2021.
Thanks to all of the fourth graders who have submitted their Readers Are Leaders reports! We look forward to celebrating your accomplishments soon!
Good luck to all of the readers!
