Building a Love of Reading

OPE READS encourages readers at all levels to set aside time in their busy schedules to discover the joy of reading for pleasure. Kids who read outside of the classroom have larger vocabularies, demonstrate improved spelling skills, and develop more competent writing abilities. Last year alone, our OPE students read over 1.2 million minutes in 16 weeks!

Students need to read at least 1,200 minutes outside of the classroom to begin earning a medal. The more they read, the higher the medal level they can achieve.

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please email sd.heidi.lee@gmail.com

Reading Hours Tracking Sheet

Students need to keep track of their minutes on the OPE READS reading log, which you will find in your child’s Friday packet this week. It’s also available for additional downloads here. Each week, please have your child log their reading minutes, sign it at the bottom, and return it to their teacher.

Your involvement in OPE READS will help your child build a multitude of skills and develop a lasting love of reading. Thank you for your help in making OPE READS a success for our students this school year!
