My kids have been teaching me how to play Pokemon Go, and I have to say, the more I learn, the more I like it. It gets them outside, active, and actually wanting to walk places! I am just amazed at how everywhere we go, people are playing, I have never seen anything like it before! So, as a teacher, I really believe it is my responsibility to learn what is motivating to kids, and figure out how I can use that excitement and interest in the classroom. Plus, I am almost level 20 in Pokemon Go… I think that’s got to earn me some kind of respect and admiration from my students…. Right?
Anyways, I came up with a reading program that hopefully will capture and channel all of their Poke-energy! It is called the Pokebook Reading challenge. Here is my listing on Teachers Pay Teachers…
The idea of the program is promote reading and to encourage kids to read for enjoyment. They track their reading using a Readingdex, and every book they read earns them BP (book power). If they earn 100 BP points, they level up, get a Bookmark Badge, and get their name displayed on my Pokewall in the library.
Here is the link to the ad:

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please let me know by commenting here or on my TPT page. I am always looking for ways to improve.
In the next few days, I will also share my latest craft project…. How to make Pokeballs out of paper plates! Yay.
