BOOK BUG RECORD SHEET

BOOK BUG CLUB INTRODUCTION
NOW THAT YOUR CHILD IS BRINGING HOME LIBRARY BOOKS WE WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE RIVERSIDE READING PROGRAM ALSO KNOWN AS THE BOOK BUG CLUB. THE READING PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE STUDENTS IN GRADES K-5 TO INCREASE THEIR INDEPENDENT READING. THE PROGRAM IS BUILT AROUND SIMPLE RECORD KEEPING. THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES ARE TO BE FOLLOWED:

1. THE CHILD READS A BOOK.

2. THE TITLE IS RECORDED ON THE BLUE BOOK BUG SHEET.

3. FOR BOOKS OVER 50 PAGES IN LENGTH, EVERY 25 PAGE SEGMENT MAY BE COUNTED AS ONE BOOK.

4. YOUNGER CHILDREN MAY INCLUDE BOOKS THAT HAVE BEEN READ TO THEM.

5. SHEETS MUST BE SIGNED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN TO VERIFY THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF READING THE BOOK.

6. COMPLETED SHEETS ARE TO BE TURNED INTO THE TEACHER AND NEW BLANK SHEETS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE.

7. THE READING LISTS AND TOTALS WILL FOLLOW THE STUDENT THROUGHOUT THEIR YEARS AT RIVERSIDE.

8. ALL RECORD KEEPING WILL BE HANDLED BY THE IMC.

AT VARIOUS LEVELS OF READING INVOLVEMENT, STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE RECOGNITION FOR THEIR PARTICIPATION. THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS:

                  25 BOOKS CERTIFICATE

                  50 BOOKS RIBBON

                  100 BOOKS BOOK BAG/BUTTON

                  200 BOOKS MEDAL
