Cesar Chavez Elementary School

100 Book Challenge

60 Minutes of Daily Reading Practice

Students read 30 minutes in school and 30 minutes at home. Quantity practice targets are set, monitored, and


rewarded, ensuring every student adopts the independent reading routines of academically successful students.

Every Student Working at Appropriate Level

Using national standards for reading proficiency, both books and students are leveled based on what


readers need to know and be able to do at each of the five developmental stages of reading


acquisition, as outlined by No Child Left Behind.
