special to the standard
Brewton Middle School seventh grade students in Madelyn Cave’s third and fourth periods (second block) competed against her students in sixth and seventh periods (third block) to see which class could read 100 books first.
They were participating in Scholastic’s Classrooms Care program, which donates books to children all over the world for every 100 books a classroom reads. The students were very competitive and began avidly reading novels.
The 16 students in Cave’s second block read 100 books in about three or four weeks, while the 17 students in third block were only at about 40 books. Mrs. Cave issued a second challenge to the classes to motivate them to continue reading; if the class who had read 100 books could read 200 books before the other class got to 100, they would receive a “super” prize.
On Friday, Oct. 9, Mrs. Cave’s second block class had their reward: a pizza party in the media center.
Students in Mrs. Cave’s winning class are Christian Alvarez, Krystal Bell, Carter Frezell, Rebecca Geiberger, Taylor Hendrieth, Leslie Holmes, River Johnson, Shakiya Jones, Shawn Leach, Bethani Madden, Todd Mayo, Derrick Murray, Tiana Stallworth, Shanika Tinker, Hannah Weaver and Madalyn Weaver.
