Reading auction at JCE a huge success

Students at JCE select books at their reading level, and once they've finished reading the book they take comprehension quizzes on Accelerated Reader.  This is where they earn their AR points.  For every AR point they earn, they get one "Book Buck."  Our JCE students earned over 7,500 book bucks! 

The students then take those "Book Bucks" at the end of each semester and get to spend them at the auction or store.  This year we had three students earn over 150 AR points in the first two nine weeks.  Mia Metzger earned 153, Talib Tilley earned 180, and Lena Finck earned 183. Lena said she wanted wanted to earn the most points in the school and make sure she had every opportunity to buy whatever she wanted at the auction and store.  Mr. Joe Ogden volunteered his time for both the winter and spring auctions as the auctioneer.  In addition, many local businesses donated items to the store and auction.  We really appreciate all of their support in rewarding our students for their efforts.

Here at Junction City Elementary, we have been using the Lexia program for over a decade. Lexia is a program that promotes learning in reading and phonics. It is used by grades Kindergarten all the way to fifth grade in our building. Since technology is having a rapidly increasing presence in the classroom, Lexia has become a big part of our school day.

We decided that the students who really work hard on Lexia will to be rewarded for their accomplishments. When a student levels up on Lexia, they are now given a certificate and then allowed to put a picture of their face on the body of their favorite superhero or Disney princess, where it stays for one week.  The “Level-Up League” has had a positive impact on our building and it is here to stay.
