Reading Incentives

How to Become a Million Word Club Member:

Read, Read, Read! 

  Start in August!  Don't wait!  

Millionaire Day Recipients must have a 90% overall average, reading independently within their independent reading zone, and have at least 1,000,000 words documented within the AR Program.



Library Reading Incentives:

The AR Program helps to keep track of the amount of words each student has accumulated, overall average, and if the student has reached the goal set per 9 weeks.  Parents and students can use Home Connect,  found in the Library's "Resource Links," to keep up with their child's progress: both the overall average and word count!

"Family Reading Night" is a time families are invited/encouraged to come to the MFES Library to read, take AR quizzes under their own unique FAMILY account, create, and learn ALL TOGETHER.  Please plan to attend this Family event! The A.L.L. program will help strengthen Marble Falls Literacy, and is simply a fun, relaxed come-&-go Family Event! Please try to attend at least once this year! 
(A.L.L.: Attaining Lifelong Learning)
                                                    The dates will be announced soon.

"The Reader in Me"
 (aka The Reading Across the Genres) is an important reading incentive supported by the MFES Library Program.  This is a project - based reading incentive connecting Literacy through the Genres.  Information, record keeping logs,  and support is found in the Library for all interested in participating.  Each student meeting their grade-level criteria for each Genre will receive an invitation to the End-of-Year Reading Carnival  in May!    2nd Grade Genres.pdf        3rd Grade Genres.pdf

"Learning With Quilts" is a literacy initiative through the Highland Lakes Quilting Club.   Students are able to see the details of the story in the quilt. Teachers are able to use these in the library as well as in their classrooms.  The quilting club is expanding who they serve this year, adding Burnet ISD.  Drop by to read the book and enjoy it's quilt.
