                                            Let’s play! You have four weeks to read four books
                                            from four different genres and complete the additional
                                            requirements. Follow all directions carefully. You may
                                            use SURF time in class to read books for this project.
                                            Ask Ms. Derrick any questions you have. Don’t wait!
                                            Get started today!

Here are some tips:
      You may use the novel we are reading together in class, Forty Acres and Maybe a Mule, for one of your books.

      If you read over the summer, good for you! You may use one book from your summer reading.

      You may designate one free space.

      Skimpy answers that show that you did not take time to think through the questions will NOT receive full credit.

You need Ms. Derrick’s approval in order to use the following:
      Books that are below your ZPD range – at most, only one will be allowed.

               Write your ZPD here: _________ to __________
      Books that are more than one level above your ZPD range.
      Books that do not have a Reading Level. WARNING: Do not assume I will approve it. Ask first!

To earn full credit you must
      get “Bingo” by completing five in a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal). You may designate one free space.
      write DETAILS in your answers.
      complete the forms that are attached to the bingo card.
      write neatly.
      spell, capitalize, and punctuate correctly.
      use correct grammar.
      use accurate information.
      submit all parts by the due date.
      read books that are in your ZPD range (or that are appropriate for you). If you are unsure, check w/Ms. Derrick.

                       Do NOT procrastinate!
This project takes time and effort. It is a major language arts grade.

       If you are having trouble picking a book for a certain genre, talk with Ms. Derrick or Mrs. Long for help.
       Do not wait to get started!
