3. Set Reading Requirements
- Auggie's Book Club is a four-week program divided into four sections, each representing a "base" on the baseball diamond. Once students complete an assignment, they will advance to the next base! The goal is to hit a "home run" by the end of the designated time frame set by the Teacher, Librarians or Media Specialists.
- Teachers, Librarians, Media Specialists work with students to set requirements and goals. Goals can be set by the number of books, number of pages, number of hours spent reading, etc.
- Each base the student completes comes with a prize from one of the Auggie's Book Club sponsors.
4. Track Student Progress
- Track the progress of each student by using the Book Club poster that is provided by the GreenJackets. There will be a section to put the student's names who have completed reading requirements for 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base and who hit a home run.
- More ways to track student progress: Create a board in which students can move their names around the baseball diamond as they complete their reading requirements.
5. Complete the Program
- Once you have got to your cut-off day, contact the GreenJackets with a number of students who completed the program and hit a home run.
