ISGR Winter Reading Challenge

The ISGR Winter Reading Challenge 2020 form:

Sharing Your Work:

With your permission, we would like to post the photos (of your work) and recordings you make to complete the challenges, on this page of our library blog. This way we create a mountain of inspiration for people who are wondering which book to read next (or for people who are wondering why they should read!). Thank you in advance for your contribution to the magic!

A Few Notes:

  • If you already are a public library member, then you can unfortunately not use that challenge to earn 5 points! This challenge is for people who aren’t members yet, and who become a member of the public library as part of this Winter Reading Challenge. Thank you for your understanding! Follow this link to become a member of the public library!
  • Challenges can be repeated a maximum of three times. This is a fine-tuning of the rule, “You are allowed to repeat a challenge.” Taking 16 selfies with your favorite book is of course very fun, but it isn’t a real challenge!
  • You can return the filled out form and your work earliest on Tuesday, 12th of January, and the latest on the 19th. Please do not return it before (unless there are special circumstances, for example that you are leaving our school). The idea is that you take your time doing this challenge. Have fun with it!
  • Sophie and Fleur will look at all your work, and if we see that you have put time and effort in the challenges, that you have completed it with care and attention, we will “approve” it. The cloth book bag is a present for the ones who complete the challenge, but you do need to deserve it! There is no limited number of book bags: we will place the order for the bags as soon as we know how many students have completed the challenge successfully!

Two Examples of Completed Winter Reading Challenges

Here follow two examples of successfully completed ISGR Winter Reading Challenges for your inspiration. These will give you an idea of what it can look like and what the expectations are. One done by Fleur, and one by PYP 4 student Vania.

Example 1:

I completed:

Draw a magic fantasy animal you made up yourself. Describe where it lives, how it behaves and what we can learn from it (20 points). Please note that I practiced my Swedish writing skills with this one, and I’m sure I made many mistakes!

Make a selfie with your favorite book (5 points).

In which bookstore (in Gbg) can you find life size Darth Vader? In the Sci-Fi Bokhandel! (5 + 5 bonus points for the selfie with it = 10 points).

Rewrite an ending of a story you know (see pdf document “The Altered Shelf Elf”: 15 points).

Record yourself reading a book/chapter of a book aloud (I read two chapters, so 15 + 15 = 30 points).

Example 2:

Vania completed:

Redesign an existing book cover (10 points).

Draw a magic fantasy animal you made up yourself. Describe where it lives, how it behaves and what we can learn from it (20 points).

Make a selfie with your favorite book (5 points).

Draw your favorite character (5 points).

Record yourself reading a chapter of a book aloud (15 points).

Write a book review. Include a photo of the book cover. (15 points).

Write a winter story (20 points).

Have fun with completing your own ISGR Winter Reading Challenge 2020-2021!
