Building Community Biblio Challenge

Get ready to re-energize reading with some community fun in November!

Let’s keep kids enthusiastic about learning and reading more than halfway through the term with a burst of creativity.

We’re also here to help parents and educators with fun learning activities as the days get busy and holidays draw near.

Your Biblio team presents our fave book activities for at home or school! Read on to find out how you can bring book-tasting, Biblio badges, and smiles to your communities!

Here’s how to re-energize reading this November:

  • Kids choose a book to read and an activity to do alongside it! They can use Shannon Miller’s interactive choice board, our activity checklist toolkit, their Biblio Challenge bookshelf, or choose a book of their own!
  • OR your class chooses a book to read and activity to do TOGETHER.
  • Kids write a review for each book & activity they do alone or as a group. 
  • Educators keep track of book reviews. Choose how many kids have to do to win a BIBLIO BADGE! Choose how many class activities or badges students collectively earn to win a COMMUNITY CERTIFICATE. Use our templates for these.
  • Have fun with this! Celebrate your kids’ and group achievements with a prize of your choosing – like a ‘dress up as your fave book character day’!
