Saeger Readers

Each year students all over Missouri read the Truman nominee books and vote on their favorite. Students must read at least 4 books to qualify for voting. The author of the winning book is awarded The Truman Readers Award at Missouri's  annual school librarian conference. 

Learn about the Truman nominees for the 20-21 school year at this link!

How to Participate:
 1.  Read one of the nominated books. You can mix and match Truman books and Mark Twain books.

2. To get points for reading, students make real-world connections to the book on our Saeger Reader's Google Classroom.  Students may also write or type their connections and turn them in to the Learning Commons.

Students will write a book-to-self, book-to-book, and book-to-world connection for each novel they read.  1-2 sentences per connection is just fine!

3.  Receive a prize for each book you read, up to 4:

1 book: gum or mints
2 books: school store coupons, pencil, eraser
3 books:  poster from the Book Fair
4 books: attend end of year pizza party, free book, vote for fav book
