TinCaps Reading K – 6th Program
Presented by Longe Optical
January 9th - March 17th
WCS will be participating in the TinCaps Reading Incentive Program during the 3rd grading period this year. The students will have the opportunity to improve their reading skills while earning a surprise gift and a ticket to a TinCaps baseball game. The TinCaps Reading Program is divided into four segments representing a “base” on the baseball field. When a student completes a segment they will advance to the next base. The goal is to “hit a home run.”
Grades K-1 do the following for each base
The verification slips can be turned in any time from Jan. 9th-March 10th
Sprint to 1st base - Listen to 5 books and send in the verification form
Dash to 2nd - Read 2 books to an adult and send in the verification form
Hustle to 3rd - Read 5 books to an adult and send in the verification form
Slide into home - Read 1 book about a sport and write 1-2 sentences about the sport. Student needs to staple the paper with the sentences to the verification form.
Grades 2-6 do the following for each base . . .
Complete their regular AR points for the grading period, Jan. 9th - March 17th. Teachers will keep track of the student progress using a chart in the classroom and set individual goal points. No verification slips are needed. Each student should achieve 25% of their AR goal to reach 1st base, 50% of their AR goal to reach 2nd base, 75% of their AR goal to reach 3rd base, and 100% of their AR goal to reach home plate. We will end the program one week before the end of the grading period to ensure the ticket forms reach the TinCaps deadline on time.
Each student that has made it to each base including home plate will receive a ticket order form. When students receive the ticket form DO NOT photocopy it, copies will NOT be accepted and ONE form per student is needed. The student that participates and makes it to home plate is the only one who gets a free ticket. You may order more tickets for the rest of your family on the order form. In order for the WCS students to be seated together, all ticket order forms must be brought back to your child’s teacher or the school office before, but no later than Thursday, March 23rd, NO exceptions (sorry). After the forms are received the actual tickets from the TinCaps office will be distributed approximately a week before the game date.
Upon completion . . . . a Home Run!!, students will receive a free ticket to the TinCaps baseball game which is scheduled for Saturday, April 29 at 1:05 p.m. We will sit together and the students will receive a free hot dog, chips, soft drink and a surprise gift.
