It’s time for PS 6 Read-a-Thon! January 29 - February 2

Our read-a-thon will run from Monday, January 29, through Friday, February 2. If you sign up your child by Sunday, January 28, your child will receive a magnetic PS 6 bookmark designed by Zeren Denker from class 4-306.
1. Go to this link and begin typing your classroom teacher's name.
2. Try typing your child's name. If it doesn't come up (it won't unless another caregiver has set up an account already this year), click "I don't see my reader."
3. Register your child using your email address. (You don't have to enter your phone number.)
4. The remaining steps are optional while registering, and you can return to your child's page at any time to complete them and/or to find the donation link to send to friends and family. Click "skip this step" if you want to do them later. You'll also have the option to "register another reader," which you can select if you have more than one child at PS6.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Set a timer for your child, or use the timer on the Read-a-thon website. When your child's reading session has ended, log the minutes through your child's dashboard on the website. Minutes spent reading during class count! Help your pre-readers get in on the action by encouraging them to flip through a book with you and tell you the story; plus, read-aloud minutes (for all ages) count!

SUGGESTED READING GOALS: Pre-readers may look at pictures and describe the story to their grown-ups or ask a grown-up to read to them! Read-aloud minutes count for all ages.
