Sticking it to Mr. Mc (with Duct Tape)

Wow! We had another huge increase in AR points. I’m still not sure we’ll make the goal, but who knows how many are saving up points to make Mr. McIntosh feel secure.

As a school, there are 1,176 AR points. I am including a class breakdown for the teachers who have classroom goals too. Remember, the totals may seem unbalanced because there are a different number of students in classes and lengths of books.

K – 129 points

1st – 74 points

2nd – 39 points

3td – 118 points

4th – 66 points

5th – 20 points

6th – 188 points

7th – 160 points

8th – 75 points

9th – 47 points

10th – 98 points

11th – 141 points

12th – 21 points

Only two more weeks in the challenge, so I may have some extra duct tape for sale. :-)

Duct Tape Challenge Update

Students are starting to get into a routine because the AR points are climbing. Mr. McIntosh may still be feeling pretty safe, but we’ll see. The goal this year is 3,500 points and students are at 665 points as a school.

Although class sizes and the length of books vary, many classes set their own goals as well as the school-wide goal so here is a breakdown of points earned by class:

K – 71 points
1st – 23 points
2nd – 13 points
3rd – 55 points
4th – 41 points
5th – 4 points
6th – 118 points
7th – 106 points
8th – 25 points
9th – 47 points
10th – 42 points
11th – 113 points
12th – 7 points

It will be exciting to see how colorful Mr. McIntosh is with the various duct tape if students end up reaching their school-wide goal. Happy reading!!
