SEPTEMBER 2015: BACK TO SCHOOL CHALLENGE
From: Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge Group
Duration: September 1 – September 30, 2015
Fall means that it is time for children and some of us to go back to school. It’s time to open up books and learn something new.
1. Get supplies: before we start school we need to buy our notebooks and pencils, and stores love to offer us deals to get our business. Read a book about economics or a book written about running a business.
2. Find out your schedule: one of the first things we get when we start back at school is our daily schedules. Read a book about time management or a book about someone who is learning how to get control over their busy schedule.
3. Time to study: it is always important to be prepared to learn and work hard when we go to school. Read a book about American education or about a character starting school.
4. Reading: becoming literate is why we go to school. Read a book about your favorite subject in school or from your favorite genre.
5. Writing: Learning how to write starts from Kindergarten and goes till the 12th grade. Read a memoir or a book about an author.
6. Arithmetic: adding, subtracting, multiplication and division are all about numbers, so why did they add so many letters? Read a book about mathematics or a book with a number in the title.
7. Time for homework: the best days are the ones when you don’t have any, but that almost never happens. Read a book about subject you did not enjoy in school or a book you should have read in school.
8. So did we learn anything? there are many reasons why people go to school: to get a job, to become smarter, or to make our parents happy. Read a book about psychology or a book about someone trying to achieve something.
