Tundra Tales Reading Program
Registration is now open for the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame’s Ninth Annual Tundra Tales At-Home Reading Program for students in 4K through eighth grade. The Tundra Tales Program is meant to develop lifelong reading habits by encouraging children to read at home. Participants will be able to read their way to scoring admission to the Packers Hall of Fame!
Remember, Tundra Tales is open to anyone: individual classrooms, entire schools, Parent Teacher Organizations, virtual schools, after school programs, homeschools, and even individual families.
The Tundra Tales program runs from January 21, 2019 - March 24, 2019. During this time, 4K through fifth grade participants must read or be read to for an average of 60 minutes per week outside of the school day for eight weeks, for a TOTAL of 480 minutes. Sixth through eighth grade participants must read for an average of 90 minutes per week outside of the school day for eight weeks, a TOTAL of 720 minutes. An extra week to achieve the total goal has been included to accommodate school schedules and spring breaks.
Participants must be registered by Friday, January 11, 2019.
This year we are offering two options for Tundra Tales registration in hopes of accommodating Coordinator schedules. Regardless of which program option you choose, Coordinators must register their participants by Friday, January 11, 2019.
All program appropriate material, including the Reading Log, Scoreboard, and Parent/Guardian Letter, are available below. Please copy and distribute to your participants. All materials will be available in both English and Spanish.
If you need to update your registration numbers for any reason, please email email@example.com rather than submitting a new form.
Please read the Coordinator Letter for further information.
This version of the program consists of four two-week segments, breaking the entire program into quarters, just like a football game. Every two weeks, Coordinators will be required to submit their participant completion numbers for that quarter. The timeline follows the standard eight weeks. If your spring break falls within the course of the program, we have planned an “overtime” ninth week to accommodate and adjust your schedule.
Participants who complete the required minutes for each quarter will receive a Packers themed prize. There will be a total of three quarterly prizes. At the end of the fourth quarter, participants who have met the final reading goal will receive a Packers Hall of Fame voucher, good for one free participant admission and one reduced price adult admission. Prizes will be mailed to Coordinators for distribution as soon as each quarter’s completion numbers are received.
If participants miss the mark for the quarter, this does not disqualify them from the final prize, the Hall of Fame voucher, as long as they complete the total number of required minutes by the end of the program.
Please refer to our Important Dates Document for a breakdown of the deadlines.
This version of the program requires the Coordinator to submit their participant completion number only once, and may appeal to Coordinators with a large number of participants. Participants in this option are not eligible for the quarterly incentives, but will qualify for the final prize, the Hall of Fame admission voucher.
