I’m really excited about the MCCBD Classroom Reading Challenge: January 27, 2016! Sponsored in part by Junior Library Guild, the Reading Challenge is designed to help TEACHERS build their classroom libraries with diverse, inclusive and multicultural books. It’s a fantastic opportunity for schools, teachers and students! Teachers read up to four multicultural books in their classroom and earn a FREE multicultural book from MCCBD. Having Junior Library Guild on board assures that the free book is a pre-screened, library-quality book that maps to Common Core. PLUS Junior Library Guild will donate up to 200 books for classrooms and teachers! This is a HUGE and exciting benefit for the MCCBD.
Here’s how to get a free book:
Step 1: TEACHERS sign up your classroom HERE. Visit the site for easy sign up and details!
Step 2: Read four diversity books to your class (picture books work for any age!) during the month of January 2016.
Step 3: Submit the books you read to MCCBD.
MCCBD will send you a diverse title FOR FREE!!
