We thank the
Education Foundation
for their support!!

The Reading Games is a free and fun reading competition for District 58 students in grades 3-8.  The mission of the Reading Games is to encourage reading in Grades 3- 8, expose kids to different genres, series, authors, and topics, as well as foster teamwork and responsibility.  All this occurs as  teams of 5 - 8 kids led by a parent or other volunteer community member prepare for a fun competitive day of book trivia!

Students form teams and collaborate to read 9 books from one of two book lists.  Lists are online now!

  • List 1 is geared for readers in third and fourth grade.

  • List 2 is geared for readers in fifth and sixth grade. 

  • Students in seventh and eighth grade who want to play should read from List 2.

The schedule for Saturday, February 24 is as follows:
List 1: 

Teams arrive 8:25am

Round 1 begins 8:45am

Awards to start around 10:30am

List 2: 

Teams arrive 12:25pm

Round 1 begins 12:45pm

Awards to start around 2:30pm

Like prior years, The Reading Games hopes to accommodate every team that wants to participate and registers during the registration period. 


Each team will need an adult team leader to register the team for the event, act as a point person for all communications and help their team prepare for The Games competition day. 


In addition, each team will be asked to send a volunteer (aged 16 years or older) to The Games to help run the day.
