From Mrs. Wille’s LIBRARY,
For students in grades Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade: Fill out the Reading Counts! sheets with any book you have read or a book that has been read to you. Put one book on each line, or for chapter books, put one chapter on each line. If you run out of sheets, call or email the school, or just use notebook paper with the child’s name printed on it. Remember, any child can be read to by another child or adult! Parents can email a photo of the sheets to firstname.lastname@example.org
*Read a book to the end, then take the computerized quiz.
To take a READING COUNTS quiz, follow these directions:
1. Go to the Truman School website http://www.truman.k12.mn.us/Home
2. Hover over “Links, Resources and Forms” then click on “Resources Links”
3. Scroll down to “Scholastic Reading Counts” and click on that. It will take you to the “Student Access” page to sign in and take a quiz.
Your user name is your first name and the first initial of your last name. Like this: lauriew
Your password is the first initial of your first name then the first four letters of your last name, and your lunch number. Like this: lwill123
You can take the quiz from 8 a.m. - 3:15 p.m. Mondays-Fridays
You are expected to use good behavior when taking a quiz.
***Read the book first. Read books that are just right for you, not too easy and not too hard.
***Do not look in the book for answers when taking the quiz.
***Use what you know when taking the quiz, without help from anyone or anything.
***Try to get 7 out of 10 questions correct to pass the quiz..
If you pass, hooray! If you don’t pass, be sure to look at the questions you answered wrong. Then reread or skim the book, and take the quiz another day. You must wait 24 hours (one day) before taking the same book quiz again. You can take the same book quiz up to 3 times. Don’t wait days or months to take the quiz again.
To see if a book has Reading Counts points, go to:
Type in a book title and click submit.
If a book has Reading Counts! points, the title will appear on the right.
Click on the title and it will show information about the book, such as the author, the book’s grade level and interest level, and Reading Counts! Points.
You can check on a book you already have at home, from our library, or ones from other places.

The top student in each grade at the end of the year will receive a gift card, a reading certificate, and a reading medal.
Please take care of yourselves and your family. We can choose to have a positive attitude and do things to make ourselves a better person, so that we come out of this situation smarter and more grateful for education. Learning doesn’t just happen in a school building, and ultimately each of us is responsible for trying to learn and improve our brain power. I think of you all and wish you the energy and stamina to keep trying and to not give up on learning.
Please read 20 minutes a day.
Read, read, read!
