The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is ready to kick off the second annual "Tundra Tales" at-home reading program for all students in grades 4K through 5, from Jan. 23 to March 25. The registration deadline is Friday, Jan. 20.
The "Tundra Tales" program is meant to develop lifelong reading habits by encouraging children to read at home.
Students must read or be read to for 60 minutes every week, outside of school, for 8 weeks, (a total of 480 minutes). Students are able to read their way to scoring fun prizes.
Students who achieve the goal will are able to earn one of the following prizes: two tickets to the Packers Hall of Fame or a tasty treat from Curly's Pub (Lambeau Float or Cookie Skillet Sundae).
Parents/guardians record the minutes throughout the process and then signature the paper to show completion. The tracking sheets are to be returned to the student's teacher by Wednesday, March 28.
Last year more than 5,000 students from across the state participated in the at-home reading program. Homeschoolers have also participated in the program, and are encouraged to continue doing so.
