100 BOOK CHALLENGE®

60 Minutes of Daily Reading Practice

Students read 30 minutes in school and 30 minutes at home. Quantity practice targets are set, monitored, and rewarded, ensuring every student adopts the independent reading routines of academically successful students.

Every Student Working at Appropriate Level

Using national standards for reading proficiency, both books and students are leveled based on what readers need to know and be able to do at each of the five developmental stages of reading acquisition, as outlined by No Child Left Behind. Learn more about how our leveling system compares to other leveling systems.

Connects Your Reading Initiatives to Common Core Standards

100 BOOK CHALLENGE® aligns all of your existing reading materials and assessment tools using one simple color-coded leveling platform, keyed to Common Core Standards, that students, teachers, and parents can understand and use to ensure every student is making expected progress towards proficiency.

Includes Parent Partnership Routines

As if they had stopped at the bookstore on the way home from school with $15–$50 to spend, each student arrives home every afternoon with 1, 2, 3, or more books that are a mix of classics and new titles hot off the press, which are part of a system designed for their achievement. Daily practice at home engages parents in their child’s learning and ensures that every student adopts the independent reading routines of academically successful learners.
