Take Me Out to the Ball GameOur students are challenged to read nightly in a school-wide reading incentive program. Those who participate earn privileges and rewards at school. If you missed my post about Hit the Books, you can read it here.
The most recent reward took place Saturday night at a Senators Baseball Game. To earn two free tickets to a the game, students had to complete the reading challenge every month from September through March.
We gathered at the field prior to the start of the game. Students received on-field recognition for their reading accomplishment. They ran the perimeter of the outfield in front of the crowd!
Then it was time to watch some serious baseball! I sat in the stands with the kids which was super fun. I love seeing them outside of the classroom setting. Their personalities really shine!
