3:33 Summer Reading Challenge

What is the 3:33 Reading Challenge?

Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles or Grandparents are encouraged to sit down and turn off all electronics and read with their children for at least 3 days per week for 30 minutes a day and share 3 things they learned or found interesting while reading a book and/or magazine.

What is the purpose of the challenge?

The 3:33 Summer Reading Challenge is designed to encourage students to read more and parents to model reading with and to children. Parent and teacher modeling is the second most influential factor in promoting a love of reading in children.

Do parents have to read a children’s book during this time?

No. They may choose a professional or leisure book to read. The goal is to model reading and taking time to turn off all distractions during this time.

Janet Brockett Elementary invites the entire Mansfield ISD community to accept the 3:33 Summer Reading Challenge!
