Well my Bears were disappointing again this football season, but it's always fun watching the Super Bowl. (Maybe next year.) In years past I have a Super Bowl Reading Contest. I split my class up into 4 or 5 teams. Each team reads for homework and for every 20 minutes they read they earn so many yards. (This usually depends on how long I run the contest. Usually it is 5 or 10 yards.) When each team reaches the end zone they score a touchdown. Each student can also fill out a book report for field goal points. Each team keeps track of their points. It's just a fun way to encourage students to read.
