    Racing off to a new year!

    I have used this theme before and started a reading race that lasted throughout the year. Each time a student completed a book, you may want them to report on it or not, they were given a small paper replica of a racecar and had to write the title of the completed book on it. They then placed their car in their lane (the one that followed their first name on the wall). These were kept on the wall all year and as each students line of cars got longer their smiles got bigger. I have even placed "pit stops" around the room (especially for the younger ones) and who ever read enough books to be the first to arrive at each pit stop was given a special prize (hot wheels car, racing calendar, keychain, small car model to build, etc. ). They loved watching their line of cars grow longer and longer.
