McKean Elementary first grade teacher creates reading challenge during shutdown

Thu, 2020-03-19 08:45

Maureen Roth wanted to come up with a way to continue to engage her students despite the two-week mandated shutdown of public schools in Pennsylvania due to COVID-19.

Roth, a first grade teacher at McKean Elementary, came up with a reading challenge for her students.

“Since we are out of school, I felt it was really important to try to motivate the kids in my room to read on a daily basis.  I wanted to make sure that we still were ‘connected’ and enjoying one of our favorite things to do- read,” she said.

She has used the app Class Dojo and has uploaded videos to challenge her students to read in a certain environment every day.

On Wednesday, it was to read outside. She sent photos to each student of what she is reading and they sent photos back of their reads. Each day she will create a new challenge.

“This will hopefully help motivate and get the kids excited to read.  I am also hoping that this will help to let them know that although we are not in school, I am thinking about them on a daily basis,” she said.
