Winter Reading Challenge

From January 1st to January 31st, Quiet Waters Elementary will participate in Beanstack’s Third Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Penguin Random House (PRH). We challenge our students to read AS MANY BOOKS AS POSSIBLE during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site.

Login, and select the Clever icon, then click on the “Beanstack” option.

  1. In Beanstack, click on the “Log Reading and Activities” button at the top left corner. BE SURE TO SELECT THE WINTER CHALLENGE PROGRAM.
  2. Click on books.
  3. As your child logs reading, he or she will earn virtual badges and special recognition. 

OR download the app right on your phone.  You can scan the book’s publisher barcode on the back of the book to automatically log the book.

Top-performing libraries and schools will earn the Golden Penguin and Random House awards. We have the opportunity to win $1,000.00 in books and/or an author visit.. Let's light up the mind this winter! Happy reading, Quiet Waters Elementary!
