***UPDATED on Mon., May 29th…Remember way back when in August? When I shared that our team mission was to read 9 genres every trimester and 28 chapter books for the year…EACH? The audible gasp was so evident, the terror, the disbelief! Well, I am proud to report that as a team, anything can be accomplished! Here is the data of our team effort in reading!
18 out of 24 students MET their 3rd trimester reading goals of completing 9 genres…even with Spring concert, Makawalu, & May Day! Ho’omaika’i for ho’omau!
18 out of 24 students also EXCEEDED their ONE MILLION WORD year long reading goal by completing more than 28 chapter books of 120pgs. or more.
4 students completed MORE THAN 1.5 MILLION WORDS! Translated into books completed, that is 42+ books each!
22 students completed 20+books this year and…
EVERYONE, all 24 read more books than they believed they could! Way to go team! Continue your reading journey!
These are our newest inductees into the Millionaireʻs Club! Students who completed 28+ books this school year!. Congrats Makamae, Nalu, & Cady for your hard work, goal setting, & huge effort!
Trimester #3 was a time with much learning going on and many celebrations too! We celebrate the Genre Gold haumāna who kept on reading to meet their target of 9 genres! Great job team! You did it!
As you can see…still reading! Yay! Continue the reading journey! The growth mindset was truly evident this year when students were told that one million words and 9 genres for each trimester were the target! So many mouths dropped open in shock, but as the year winds down now…I am so happy to announce that EVERY student has grown and improved and amazed themselves! Each were asked to set personal goals and each has read more than they imagined! Congrats kaʻu iʻa for a job well done! Congrats team for working together, encouraging each other, and for having the hiki no attitude! You are all FAB! For the future, keep your eye on the ball (your target) and ALWAYS “Swim Strong!” Attitude and hard work pays off tenfold! 🙂
*All progressfolios will be uploaded to Google drive by May 25th so you can see student reflection on their reading accomplishments and of the year! Mahalo to Ohana 5B for all your support in helping keiki to thrive!
