The Reading Games are coming!

The Reading Games are coming!

District 58’s favorite reading competition is coming on Saturday, Feb. 24! The Reading Games is a free and fun reading competition for students in grades 3-8. The mission of the Reading Games is to encourage reading in Grades 3- 8, expose kids to different genres, series, authors, and topics, as well as to foster teamwork and responsibility. All this occurs as teams of 5 - 8 students, led by a parent or other volunteer community member prepare for a fun competitive day of book trivia!

Students form teams and collaborate to read nine books from one of two book lists. Lists are online now!

  • List 1 is geared for readers in third and fourth grade.
  • List 2 is geared for readers in fifth and sixth grade.
  • Students in seventh and eighth grade who want to play should read from List 2.

Like prior years, The Reading Games hopes to accommodate every team that wants to participate and register during the registration period. Each team will need an adult team leader to register the team for the event, act as a point person for all communications and help their team prepare for The Games competition day.

In addition, each team will be asked to send a volunteer (aged 16 years or older) to The Games to help run the day. For more information click here.
